A 16-year-old boy was punched and stabbed by a group of men at about 11:35 a.m. on May 19 at a Woodhaven playground, according to a criminal complaint obtained by the Queens Chronicle.

The complaint states that Kevin Ortiz, 22, allegedly stabbed Christopher Dargan twice in the stomach at London Planetree Playground, located at 88-01 Atlantic Ave.

Three other suspects were seen punching Dargan and two more were seen standing over the victim as the crime took place.

Those suspects were still at large at press time.

Dargan’s intestines were punctured by the stab wounds, according to the complaint, and required surgery to be stitched back together.

A DA spokeswoman did not respond to questions as to whether or not Dargan was still in the hospital.

Ortiz is charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree gang assault, first-degree assault, endangering the welfare of a child and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Welcome to the discussion.
