Screw loose: Man attacks teens with screwdriver in Williamsburg, cops


Police are looking for the reprobate who stabbed three teens with a screwdriver on Flushing Avenue on May 25.

The tool-wielding wacko was having an argument with two 16-year-olds — a boy and a girl — and a 17-year-old girl, near Broadway at 2 a.m., when he pulled out the screwdriver and stabbed the boy in the back of his head, before jabbing him in the torso, according to police.

The maniac then drove the tool into the younger girl’s arm, before stabbing the older teen in the chest, cops said.

The three victims made their way to Woodhull Hospital following the attack, and are in stable condition, according to the authorities.
