FLATBUSH, Brooklyn — A 27-year-old man was repeatedly stabbed outside the Zombie House in Brooklyn early on Thursday, police said.
He argued with his attacker on Flatbush Avenue around 3 a.m., according to the NYPD.
The victim was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition.
Police have asked for help identifying the attacker, who is about 5 feet, 11 inches tall. The man has a full beard and a large build. He was last seen wearing a black and yellow jacket, a knit cap, black jeans and black sneakers.
The owner of Zombie House said the argument did not start inside.
"We were closed," the owner said. "The bar was closed at the time."
Community activists have asked the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office to take a closer look at the Flatbush Zombie House and its owner. Several people have detailed assaults inside the lounge.
There's a protest Friday calling for the bar to be shut down.
