(NBC New York) - A heroic Bronx parking garage worker thwarted a robbery when he somehow managed to push a suspect wielding a massive butcher knife and his alleged accomplice out of the building, police said.

The attendant's weapon of choice? An apple.

Authorities say two suspects, one armed with a knife, walked into the garage on East 143 Street just before 5:30 p.m. Sunday and demanded cash. When the 58-year-old victim refused, the armed suspect stabbed him in the torso, police said. The suspects fled the scene without any property.

The unidentified victim was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.
