A young man was hospitalized after a group of suspected gang members attacked him with punches and kicks, and then stabbed him twice inside a warehouse in The Bronx (NYC).
The NYPD last night released a video of the crime that occurred around 2 am on Monday, April 5, 2021 at “Fried Chicken Deli and Grocery” on 138 St., Mott Haven neighborhood. NYPD detailed that a group approached the 25-year-old victim, who was with other people inside the store.
They started beating him and kicking him all over his body. Also he was stabbed with an unknown sharp object twice on the torso and left arm.
The group then fled east on 138th Street. Paramedics took the unidentified victim to NYC Health + Hospitals / Lincoln in stable condition, Fox News reported.
No arrests or motive for the attack have been announced. Police released surveillance video in an attempt to identify the suspects. The case recalled the violent homicide of Lesandro “Junior” Guzmán Feliz, a 15-year-old stabbed multiple times by gang members outside a warehouse in the Bronx in June 2018.
