According to the New York Post, Carson and his girlfriend had just returned from a wedding when the aggressor confronted them, demanding, “What the f-ck are you looking at?”
In bid to de-escalate the situation, Carson calmly replied that he wasn’t looking at the aggressor. However, this only seemed to provoke the violent assailant, who began shouting threats, including, “I’ll kill you!”
Despite Carson’s pleas for the man to “chill”, the assailant took a knife out and began brutally stabbing the activist, who had tripped over a bench during the attack.
After the savage assault, the attacker heartlessly walked away but returned momentarily to spit on Carson’s girlfriend before fleeing the scene.
Carson was a well-respected campaign manager at the New York Public Interest Research Group, where he focused his efforts on sustainability and environmental policies, as reported by the Post.

“Either the door was open, or the offender knew how to get the door open,” a detective said, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. “We just don’t know yet.”
Before his harrowing death, Kruger had taken to Twitter to dismiss concerns about crime plaguing Philadelphia.
In one post, dated July 20, Kruger sarcastically celebrated what he perceived as a decrease in crime. “Looks, it’s that lawless of liberals in Philly where shootings are…dropping to levels not seen in years.”
In another tweet, Kruger dismissed claims that the city was in a state of ruin. “Bro speak for your block mine isn’t ‘ruined,’ the city isn’t ‘ruined,’’ he continued. “Like the rest of the country we are dealing with upticks in crime.”
Bro speak for your block mine isn’t “ruined,” the city isn’t “ruined,” and just because Larry Krasner keeps winning in landslides doesn’t mean Philly is a heap of cinders and ashes no matter how much people say. Like the rest of the country we are dealing with upticks in crime. https://t.co/TeSFAdxLz7
