The video shows the two suspects laying in wait before they pounced on the teen as he held the deli’s door open for another customer.
One of the men pulled out a knife and slashed the victim across the neck.
The man was rushed to hospital where he is said to be in a critical condition.
The NYPD reported a 166 percent increase in shootings across the month of August when compared with the same time last year.
Murder rates were also up 47 percent, while burglaries were up 22 percent.
The shocking stats come after Mayor Bill de Blasio defunded the NYPD by more than $1 billion back in July following widespread protests.
