One man was stabbed to death and another was injured in what is believed to have been an assault on the two men in broad daylight on a busy stretch of Jamaica Avenue in Richmond Hill on March 6.

Police responded to a call of a stabbing outside 126-19 Jamaica Ave. at 3:33 p.m. and found the victim, Jose Rubio, 32, who lived at 148-48 88 Ave. in Briarwood. He was transported to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, which is only a few blocks away from the scene, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

A second victim, a 17-year-old Hispanic man, had minor injuries as a result of being hit in the shoulder with a rock. He refused medical attention at the scene.

Police say they believe the two were attacked by a group of men while walking along Jamaica Avenue. A motive has not yet been established.

There have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.

The stabbing oocurred less than a quarter of a mile from where a man was shot to death outside a nightclub in January.
