Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights are looking for two men who attacked a 34-year-old man in Corona last month.
The victim was walking on a narrow stretch of 104th Street near 39th Avenue at around 8:40 on the night of Wednesday, May 25, when the two suspects approached and engaged him in a verbal dispute. The argument turned physical and one of the assailants stabbed the victim in the abdomen with an unknown object before the two men took off running eastbound on 39th Avenue, police said.
EMS responded to the scene and transported the victim to Elmhurst Hospital Center in stable condition.
The NYPD released a surveillance photo of the suspect they believe stabbed the victim. He is described as a light-skinned man between 22 and 25 years of age, 5’8” tall, 150 pounds wearing a black sweatshirt and black pants and was carrying a red backpack, police said.
A second suspect is also described as a light-skinned man between 22 and 25 years of age, 5’8” tall and 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt, black pants and a black face mask.
Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspects is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782).
