SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – They were college buddies, but now one of them stands accused of attacking his friends with a knife.
“I never saw anything like this before,” witness Muaadh Kassim said.
Kassim said he was working inside the Stockade Market & Deli when the young students stumbled through the door clutching their stomachs. Kassim said he instantly recognized the young men as regulars.
“They come in, and they were like, ‘Please call the police,’” Kassim recalled. “I said, ‘What happened?’ They said, ‘We got stabbed.’”
Kassim said he didn’t know Miranda by name, but he instantly recognized his mug shot. Kassim said Miranda was the dorm mate who had nearly died on the floor inside his store. He called the three best friends but couldn’t fathom what could have led up to the alleged stabbing.
“I don’t know,” he said. “Something crazy.”
Miranda is due back in court Wednesday morning for a bail hearing.
