Police are looking for the group who violently stabbed a man aboard a Bronx bus earlier this month. 

According to police, the 35-year-old victim was riding the Bx19 bus near E. 149th Street and St. Ann’s Avenue in the South Bronx at around 8:40 a.m. on Feb. 15, when the group approached and engaged him in a verbal altercation. 

One of the suspects then stabbed him in the head with a knife, while the others punched and hit him in the back with a blunt object, cops said. 

The suspects hopped off the bus before police arrived and ran off towards 600 Bergen Ave.

Paramedics, meanwhile, took the bloodied man to NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln for treatment. 

Citywide, cops have investigated 3,372 assaults on the streets of the five boroughs — marking a slight uptick from the 3,347 assaults during the same timeframe last year, according to NYPD statistics.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website, on Twitter @NYPDTips.
