A bleeding man stumbled into the St. James Hotel near bustling Times Square early Saturday shouting, “I got shot!” — and police were seeking his attacker.
It was not immediately clear what happened to the man, though a police source said it’s believed he had actually been stabbed — in the buttocks.
“He was still able to walk; he just came in to ask for the address,” said a hotel employee who described the blood-splattered man but declined to give his name.
“I told him the address and he was on the phone with 911 and [police] were here in a minute. He walked in with his pants covered in blood,” the employee said.
“I don’t know what happened. He looked like he was in shock. Just in shock. He kept saying, ‘I got shot! I got shot!’ The cops came right after him.”
The suspect was still being sought an hour after the 2 a.m. incident.
