September 16, 2021

NEW YORK — A diner at a high-end Manhattan restaurant was shot in the leg during a stickup attempt in the eatery's outdoor seating area, police said.

The 28-year-old victim and his date were at Philippe on East 60th Street at 10 p.m. Wednesday when a pair of armed robbers approached them and diners at another table and demanded their jewelry, police said.

A man at another table surrendered his watch, but the 28-year-old tried to wrestle the gun away from one of the robbers and was shot in the leg, police said.

The gunmen fled in a sport utility vehicle driven by a third man, police said. The shooting victim was treated at a hospital and was expected to survive.

The victim's date, who did not give her name, told the Daily News that she was "in shock." 

Police have made no arrests.
