2005_07_knife.jpgWe don't know whether to yell "Go, Grandpa!" or "Good grief, Grandpa": When a man tried to steal his cigarettes, 80 year old German Centelles took out a knife and stabbed Roberto Ortiega repeatedly. Two firefighters happened to be passing by, with one saying to the other, "Did you see what I saw?" They stopped Centelles, who seemed to be "going to town" on Ortiega, as he had his knife in Ortiega thigh. One firefighter ending up chasing Centelles as the other saved Ortiega who was going into shock. Gothamist would be very lucky to be that spry when we're old, but we don't plan to excessively knife our muggers.
