Police Reveal New Details in Dunkin’ Donuts Stabbing Investigation

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – A 32-year-old man was charged with trying to kill another man at a Dunkin’ Donuts in February, and he went before a Broward County judge on Friday.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says that the attack happened on February 13 at the chain’s Pompano Beach location at 2770 W. Atlantic Blvd.

Deputies say the victim was caught off guard because he had just put his coffee and breakfast on the front passenger seat of his car moments before the attack.

A police report says that when the victim walked around to the driver’s side door, Nicholas Vert suddenly walked up to him and asked him, “What’s up now, b—— a— n——?”

The report says that Vert then stabbed the man in the upper chest, just below the neck, cutting his brachial artery. He then ran away.

Deputies said the person ran into the store to get help.

Workers called 911, and paramedics took him to Broward Health North to get help. BSO says that the man later needed to have emergency surgery at Broward Health Medical Center and had to be flown there by helicopter.

The victim’s story was backed up by what other people saw and by video evidence, the report says. The victim also picked Vert out of a group of photos, the deputies said.

The report, which was partially blacked out, doesn’t say why Vert is said to have done what he did or if he and the victim knew each other.

On February 20, deputies caught Vert and took him to the Broward Main Jail.
