A father who told New York cops his six-year-old daughter had been stabbed in an attempted robbery on the Lower East Side has now been arrested for the assault.

Pan said the robbers held him at knifepoint before making off with his credit card and jewelry.

After an investigation to the events, the NYPD placed the 55-year-old under arrest.


Before Pan was arrested, NBCNews reported the youngster 'got in between the robber and her father when she was knifed.

The alleged robbery took place on Monroe Street, underneath Manhattan Bridge, at 12.05am Friday morning.

Police sources told the New York Post that Pan is now in custody, facing charges of attempted manslaughter, reckless endangerment, assault and endangering a child.

The six-year-old underwent surgery at Bellevue Hospital after the attack and is now resting, sources said. She is expected to make a full recovery.
