A man armed with a knife jumped on stage and attacked New York Republican nominee for governor Rep. Lee Zeldin during an outdoor campaign rally in the Rochester suburb of Perinton Thursday night. The man reportedly wrestled with Zeldin but was subdued by someone else at the rally. Zeldin was not hurt in the attack and finished his speech. Lt. Governor nominee Alison Esposito reportedly suffered a cut hand in the attack.

Excerpt from Rochester First:

Witnesses say Zeldin was giving a speech about bail reform at the VFW on Macedon Center Road when a man got on stage, started yelling, “wrestled with him a bit, and pulled a blade out.”

The alleged attacker was suppressed by AMVETS national Director Joe Chenelly. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said he was taken into custody.

“My father was near the front, apparently Lt. Gov candidate Alison Esposito was cut on the hand while helping subdue the attacker (25 Year NYPD Cop so I’m not surprised she intervened) but she is alright.”

The attack was caught on video:
