""According to, “A reputed mob associate stabbed a prominent Brooklyn pizzeria owner Friday after a wild argument in a grocery store spilled out onto the street, sources said.”

The dispute continued on the sidewalk when Geritano – an ex-con who beat a murder rap for a 1991 Bensonhurst slay – whipped out a blade and started slashing Iacono. ‘He was violently stabbing the other guy,’ said a witness who declined to give her name. “There was blood everywhere. The guy getting stabbed was screaming.”
