NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Jack Gindi and Madraque Tyquan Bailey apparently had some kind of long running dispute, and cops say it came to a head on Monday near the Empire State Building when Bailey stabbed Gindi.

"He was on the ground, there was blood on the ground, and somebody like holding a bandage to his back," a witness told CBS2.

The witness said it looked like Gindi had suffered a deep wound to the abdomen. Another witness said he thought Gindi had been shot because he saw an exit wound in his back.

Gindi was taken to Bellevue where he was expected to make it.

Bailey was arrested. There's no word yet as to what caused the dispute, but police say the pair were engaged in an ongoing dispute.
