MOUNT VERNON - A stabbing left a man wounded in the leg in Mount Vernon Tuesday night -- the latest violent attack in the city in recent days.

A local businesses owner, who didn't want to appear on camera, says a man with a severely bleeding leg knocked on the door and told him he'd walked for a block down South Fourth Avenue with the injury. 

The business owner says he brought a chair out to the sidewalk for the man and called for help.

The incident comes on the heels of the deadly shooting at The Mansion nightclub in Mount Vernon on Christmas morning. Surveillance video obtained by News 12 shows the club's security guards struggling with a man identified as 39-yr-old Errol Hillary.

The video was captured just moments after he allegedly started shooting inside the building. Club owner O'Neil Bandoo was killed and five others were injured.

Neighbors say these incidents continue to give the city a bad reputation. 

"Mount Vernon is still a good place to live. Unfortunately, there's good and bad everywhere you go," says resident Tyrone Abney.
