An off-duty NYPD officer was stabbed at his own home as he was hosting a party for his daughter in East Elmhurst on Saturday night.

According to the NYPD, the stabbing occurred near 94th Street and 30th Avenue at about 9:30 p.m. Luis Diaz, 43, was in his home when 18-year-old Diego Velasco of Jamaica tried to access his home.

The men got into an altercation before Velasco stabbed the officer in the left arm, police said. A 59-year-old man at the house was also stabbed in the right shoulder. Both victims were taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in stable condition.

Velasco was also treated at the hospital and was taken there by a uniformed sergeant who arrested him shortly thereafter.

He was charged with two counts of felonious assaults and the investigation is ongoing.
