A crazed man made a Pathmark meat aisle extra bloody this morning when he plunged a knife into an elderly shoppers neck, allegedly after the perpetrator stepped on the victim's foot, police and store employees said.
Abdullah Mohammed, 51, of 125th Street, was at the Harlem supermarket yesterday morning when he started arguing loudly at the customer service desk with William Perry, 70, a former truck driver. Perry was at the desk buying Lotto tickets when Mohammed stepped on his foot, irking the older man, according to his older brother, Charles Perry.
Mohammed, who was clad in a peach linen suit, was booted out of the store, but stormed back in minutes later and cornered Perry in the meat aisle, two employees said. He then allegedly whipped out a razor and slashed Perry across the neck.
"People ran out of the store. One guy was screaming, Oh my God, Ive never seen anything like this," said Rafael Feliciano, a repairman who witnessed the melee.
A heroic store employee tackled Mohammed and subdued him until the police responded to the meat aisle melee, cops said. Mohammed was dragged out of the supermarket screaming "at everyone around him," Feliciano said.

Those wacky Amish...
Whoa! Abdullah “Razor” Mohammed!
Mohammed slashes Perry’s neck. Nothing to see here. I am sure Mr. Perry comitted a hate crime by bleeding on Mr Mohammed’s suit.
Gee, I wonder what he was screaming at people. I bet it wasn't "Go Yankees!"
Nope, never. Not even around, oh, September 2001.
Mohammed was arrested and charged with assault in the first degree. Perry was taken to Harlem Hospital and was likely to survive his injuries, police said.
I wouldn’t live there for anything.
Just another peaceful, tolerant Muslim who happened to have a knife on him at the supermarket meat counter. Was the elderly shopper buying pork?
What Mo needed was two in the chest and one in the head.
Our Homeland Security Czar sees no logic in profiling moslem men.
I'm amazed to see how many journalists graduated from Stacy and Clinton's What Not to Wear School of Journalism. I mean, I knew he was nuts as soon as they told me his name, but more and more of these violent crime stories lately have to inform us what the perp was wearing.
I’ve never heard of a peach linen suit, much less a crazed Muslim. This must be fiction.
Wonder if he was screaming anything about allah being akbar ... or anything like that ... just wondering, that’s all ... just wondering ...
Let’s import more of them.
I thought that was kind of an odd thing to say as well.
I’m betting the writer just didn’t want to say “traditional muslim garb”.
Even worse, where it says this:
“People ran out of the store. One guy was screaming, Oh my God, Ive never seen anything like this,”
they were actually talking about his apparel.
