Arrest made after man stabbed at North Miami Beach food market

NORTH MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Police made an arrest Monday after a man was viciously stabbed at a North Miami Beach food market.

Police could be seen conducting their investigation at Jiffy Food Market near Northeast 165th Street and 15th Avenue Sunday after the stabbing, Sunday afternoon.

They eventually arrested Donald Brown as a suspect and said the stabbing was the result of an argument.

According to the people inside the store, the victim was stabbed three times in the neck. The man then went inside the store where good Samaritans rushed to his aid.

One good Samaritan, Kierra Pierre-Louis, was eight months pregnant when she helped the victim.

“Me and my husband pulled up and everybody was screaming and saying that somebody just got stabbed but nobody was helping him,” she said.

Pierre-Louis and her husband immediately jumped into action.

“I just grabbed a blanket and ran in here and helped my husband apply pressure to his neck … we held it to his neck until the paramedics came,” she said. “I was terrified. I didn’t know if he was gonna make it, and I was scared he was gonna die, and I was just gonna be there with him.”

Pierre-Louis said she is grateful to be at the right place at the right time.

“I’m happy that he made it because he was a good guy. He didn’t do anything to anybody,” she said. “I was just at the right place at the right time.”

North Miami Beach Police has not released surveillance video of the incident.

The victim remains hospitalized in critical condition but is expected to be OK.

The suspect has been charged with attempted murder.
