NYC's Ruth's Chris Steak House stabbing leaves patron hurt, NYPD seek female attacker

A woman having dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Manhattan stabbed a male patron after becoming enraged by his arguing with an employee Friday night, police said.

The 24-year-old man began squabbling with a worker at the upmarket Midtown steakhouse just after 10 p.m. — and made such a scene that it disturbed diners at nearby tables, including two women enjoying a meal together who told him to quiet down, according to cops and sources.

When he didn’t, one of the ladies grabbed a steak knife and stabbed him in the back, the law-enforcement sources said.

She and her friend then fled on foot — without paying their bill, sources said. They were last seen heading east on West 51st Street.

The man was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell in stable condition and is expected to survive.

Police were looking for the alleged stabber, who was described as black with a light complexion and wearing a black jumpsuit.
