Four cut outside of Ridge bar

Police arrested a guy who allegedly stabbed four men outside a Bay Ridge bar early Dec. 12.

Law enforcement officials say a dispute in Leif Bar at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 67th Street spilled outside onto the street at 4:20 am, where a 25-year-old cut four guys with a knife. Cops made an arrest at the scene and are charging the 25-year-old suspect with assault and criminal weapons possession, a law enforcement source said. The attacker apparently grazed his victims, leaving them with minor wounds, officials said.

But the barkeep says the alleged slicer was never in his pub and that cops and another newspaper are making him look bad.

“We’re so pissed off,” said Mike Gallagher, a co-owner of Leif Bar who claims the pub had been closed for an hour before the attack. “The Daily News has false information. It happened at Chinese flower store next door. It was Arabic kids outside on Fifth Avenue. They weren’t in the bar. You can’t ruin my whole business career.”
