A suspect is in custody after he stabbed several people during an attempted carjacking in Cambria Heights Tuesday afternoon, police said.

The attempted carjacking occurred about 12:35 p.m. at 228th Street and 115th Avenue when a man approached the passenger side of a 52-year-old woman’s Hyundai, cops said. After he asked to use her cell phone, the suspect stabbed the woman. She then drove away with the suspect in the car, struck a tree at 226th Street and the vehicle overturned, according to authorities.

A few Good Samaritans came to help the woman, including a 36-year-old man who kicked in the windshield to get the woman out of the car, police said. The suspect, while trying to flee, then stabbed two other people who were trying to help, a 38-year-old and a 57-year-old man.

All three of the victims were taken to the hospital, authorities said. The woman is in stable condition and the two men’s injuries were non-life threatening.

The suspect was taken into custody and charges are pending, cops said.
