Cops are searching for the four men who violently attacked a teenager in Sunset Park last week.
According to the NYPD, the 19-year-old victim was walking along the neighborhood’s namesake park on April 14 just after 6 p.m., when the four men approached at Fifth Avenue and 41st Street.
After a brief interaction, the victim attempted to walk away, but the band of brutes began punching and kicking him, according to police.
While he was on the ground, one of the perpetrators stabbed the victim in the back twice with a sharp object, cops said.
The individuals fled the location on foot, southbound along Fifth Avenue.
Paramedics arrived on the scene shortly after and rushed the bloodied teenage victim to a nearby hospital for treatment of lacerations to his torso, a collapsed lung, and injuries to his head.
Police have yet to make any arrests in the case, and the investigation remains ongoing.
This year, through April 16 (two days after the incident), there had been 62 felony assaults recorded in the 72nd Police Precinct, where the violent attack took place.
