Three people were stabbed and two others were run over after a Brooklyn Puerto Rican Day celebration turned violent early Monday morning, police officials said.
None of the injuries was considered life threatening, and police are looking for several suspects and a vehicle in the case.
The violence began at about 1:15 a.m. on June 15 in front of 336 Bleecker St., near Wyckoff Avenue, in Bushwick. Officers from the 83rd Precinct rushed to the scene and found three people with stab wounds.
Police said a 32-year-old man had been stabbed in both arms and his back; a 37-year-old man suffered knife wounds to the back and stomach; and a 21-year-old was punctured in the arm.
Law enforcement sources said two young men, ages 29 and 30, also suffered minor leg injuries after the suspect apparently struck them with the getaway car while fleeing.
All were taken to Elmhurst Hospital and were reported in stable condition, police officials said.
