The NYPD is looking for a group of suspects who were caught on camera attacking a man during an argument on a Midtown street.
Authorities say that at 3:15 a.m. on April 30, a 36-year-old man was in front of 700 8th Avenue when he got into a verbal dispute with three unknown individuals. The altercation escalated when a group of other individuals came over and began to punch and kick the victim throughout his face and body.
The suspects threw a garbage can at the victim and stabbed him three times in the shoulder and back. The assailants then took the victim’s sunglasses and cellphone before fleeing eastbound on 44th Street towards 7th Avenue. The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition.
The NYPD released photos and a video of the suspects:
