Terrifying video shows the moment two modern art museums were attacked

The New York Police Department has released incredible footage showing the moment a man jumps over the front desk at Museum of Modern Art in New York City and stabbed two workers Saturday afternoon.

The 33-second surveillance clip shows the suspect, believed to be 60-year-old Gary Cabana, angrily cornering two employees, identified only as a 24-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman, after he was denied admission to the museum and informed his membership had been revoked the day before due to his previous behaviour.

In the footage, Cabana can be seen allegedly stabbing the woman before she fled, leaving him in front of a male receptionist. As Cabana lunged towards the officer, a security guard threw a folder at him, although he backed away when he saw the knife.

The female employee was stabbed in the neck and back, and the male employee was stabbed in the collarbone. Both are expected to survive.

Police identified Cabana as a suspect Saturday night, though they have yet to locate him.

On Saturday, a music supervisor who visited the museum, Weston Pagano, told The Daily Beast he saw two people being carried out of the famous art institute on a stretcher.

“[They] consciously, it’s a relief to see,” Pagano told The Daily Beast. “One could see the blood on her left side and scream something as she was being loaded, but I couldn’t tell what it was.”
