Video shows man attacking NYC Apple Store guard, worker amid
mask dispute 1

Dramatic new video captures the moment a man stabbed a security guard and punched another worker at the Chelsea Apple Store — after the guard insisted he wear a mask inside. 

The violent fracas erupted around 6:20 p.m. Friday at the store on West 14th Street and Ninth Avenue when the male guard asked the customer to mask up, according to cops and police sources.

Footage released late Monday shows the suspect socking the security guard in the face next to a staircase. 

The vicious customer then briefly left the store but quickly returned, cops said. 

The footage then cuts to the man slugging a 25-year-old female employee. 

The security guard, 37, quickly steps in and the two men start wrestling near the entrance to the store, the footage shows.
