Three male teens were stabbed at the Jamaica Center/Parsons-Archer subway station in Jamaica around 3:30 p.m. Monday, according to the NYPD. No one was immediately arrested for the crime.
The victims — ages 17, 18 and 19, got into a verbal argument with two Hispanic men that turned physical and resulted in the 17-year-old being stabbed in the leg and the other two being knifed in the stomach, police said. The names of the victims, who are black, were not released.
The teens were taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in stable condition. The two suspects fled in an unknown direction. Police have images of one of the suspects who was captured on surveillance footage.
The fight may have had something to do with an iPhone, the Daily News reported, though it is unclear which person was the owner.
