Detectives in Queens are looking for three men who brutally stabbed and robbed a 20-year-old man after he parked his car earlier this weekend.
Police released on Sunday morning images of the perpetrators sought for the attack that occurred at 10:35 p.m. on Dec. 9 near the corner of 194th Street and 75th Avenue in Fresh Meadows.
According to law enforcement sources, one of the trio members approached the 20-year-old victim just after he had parked his vehicle and engaged him in a conversation.
After the young man exited from the vehicle, cops said, two other suspects then approached, and the three perpetrators then went on the attack.
NYPD sources said one of the robbers pulled out a sharp object and stabbed the victim multiple times in the upper torso and arm. During the beatdown, cops said, the suspects pulled the victim’s jacket, which contained a large amount of cash, off of him.
But as the victim actively resisted them, police noted, the trio of attackers eventually gave up. They then hopped into a nearby white Cadillac XT5 and fled the scene.
The incident was reported to the 107th Precinct. EMS brought the victim to NewYork-Presbyterian Queens Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.
Police described the three attackers as Asian men in their 20s with light complexions and thin builds, all of whom spoke Mandarin. NYPD sources said one of them, who wore a black hooded sweatshirt with an emblem design on the back, was the suspect who stabbed the victim.
