Michael Palacios was seen in the footage that produced punches from the men before calmly removing the ax from his backpack, which he then begins to wield in the air, threatening those around him.

The three others he’d been fighting with quickly ran for cover, some hiding in a disabled toilet, while others ran to the back of the restaurant in hopes of escaping.

But the aggressor seems to settle a score and begins to use his ax to destroy furniture causing thousands of dollars in damage.

He is seen throwing the ax down at several tables of the restaurant that have been smashed into small pieces.

He also smashes the ax against a glass panel that instantly shatters on impact, before cornering one of his previous attackers who then begs for mercy as he huddles against a wall.

He then knocks one of the men he was fighting out of his chair – while threatening other frightened guests, and at one point yells, “Don’t be afraid of me, be afraid of him!”

After the eruption, Palacios fled on his bicycle but was arrested a short time later by police on nearby Ludlow Street, the driver said. The police were able to track him down in part thanks to the widespread footage of the incident.

Palacios – whom social media collectively referred to as “the ax man” upon seeing the footage – was arrested and charged with criminal mischief, three counts of threat and two counts of criminal gun possession.

The numerous incidents have tired New Yorkers as crimes, violence, looting and physical altercations continue to take place in neighborhoods.

In the meantime, 10,500 burglaries have been reported, which is about 2,600 more than in 2021.

The crime rate is also up 18.2 percent, with large scale theft leading the crime resurgence with over 10,000 reported cases compared to last year.

The city also recorded a 39 percent increase in robberies and a 21 percent increase in major assaults.

There was a mass exodus of officers from the NYPD this year, according to the… New York Postwith 2,465 police officers looking to leave the department – 42 percent more than the 1,731 who left at the same time last year.
