A 22-year-old man was stabbed during an attempted robbery earlier this month while standing outside a Corona bar, police said.

The victim was in front of Salon Mexico, a bar located at 97-15 37th Ave., when he was approached by two men at 2:20 a.m. on Thursday, July 5 who demanded his cellphone and cash. When the victim refused, one of the suspects pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the chest and back, police said.

The victim was taken to Flushing Hospital where he was treated and released. The two suspects fled eastbound on 37th Avenue empty handed, according to police.

The suspects are both Hispanic and the police captured a photo of one of the perpetrators at a nearby store.

Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)
