The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said Nicole Bean, 17, and Kevin Minemier, 18, both of Henrietta, were shopping at Wegmans on Tuesday night when Minemier pulled out a knife and stabbed Bean.

Other shoppers heard her screams and rushed to her aid, including Chris Patino, 16, and Mustafa Said, 19. Police said the teens fought with Minemier and took the knife from him.

Bean suffered a serious eye injury and remains hospitalized.

Minemier, charged with attempted murder and assault, is being held without bail.

Trump seeking deal for iconic restaurant

NEW YORK (AP) -- Donald Trump will seek a deal with New York City to reopen Central Park's landmark Tavern on the Green restaurant, which went bankrupt and closed more than a year ago.

Trump is prepared to invest more than $20 million to restore the city-owned restaurant to its former glory, Trump spokesman Ron Lieberman said Thursday.

Tavern on the Green was among the world's highest-grossing restaurants, serving more than 700,000 meals a year and generating $38 million in revenues, before it fell on hard times during the recession. It closed on New Year's Day 2010.
