Hunt Jackson Heights Stab Suspects

By Liz Goff
Police are searching for three suspects who stabbed a 56-year-old man during a mugging in Jackson Heights on December 20.

Cops said the victim was walking at 75th Street and Northern Boulevard at about 10 p.m. on December 20 when three men approached and demanded his cash.

When the victim tried to fight off the suspects, one of the men pulled a sharp object and stabbed him in the leg – then slashed him across the torso, police said. The suspects grabbed the victim’s cash and fled in an unknown direction.

The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries he suffered in the attack.

Police are urging anyone with information to call the CrimeStoppers HOTLINE at 1-800-577-TIPS or click on www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
