Police secure the corner of Jamaica Avenue and 85th Street Wednesday night after a man was stabbed.

A 24-year-old man remains in critical condition after being stabbed by a group of teenage assailants on a Woodhaven street Wednesday night, according to police.

The victim was in front of a location on Jamaica Avenue near 85th Street at about 6:48 p.m. Wednesday when the group approached him.

Authorities said the suspects — described as Hispanic males between 15 and 17 years of age — went on the attack, punching and kicking the man about the body, then stabbing him in the neck and torso.

Sources familiar with the investigation said the victim was not known to the group, and a motive for the attack also remains a mystery.

Following the assault, the group fled in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 102nd Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. Paramedics rushed the victim to Jamaica Hospital for treatment.

No arrests have been made, and an investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding the assault is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish speakers, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.

Notice how the lowly wanna-be media outlets such as ny1, nydaily news, and the nytimes don't report on such vile attacks committed only by the dirtbags within our society but instead will mewl constantly on our noble law enforcement doing their rightful jobs.

I think he's saying the news outlets don't report on this stuff, they rather bash the cops vs. exposing lowlives committing real crimes like this!

I really cannot believe I'm hearing this. Listen enough with bashing the cops and what they are doing on their job. Did you just read the report here on line where thousands of New Yorkers can read it. It has also been put on Twitter. What else would you like. A march.. Cops aren't doing their job right? That area has always been a high risk crime area. If you're so concerned about these gangs, start up a neighborhood watch and help out the Police Officers for a change instead of whining who gets on the first page of the news. Get real. You wouldn't even walk over there after dark, who are you kidding?
