Police are searching for three suspects who are wanted for allegedly stabbing and robbing a man in Jackson Heights last month.

The suspects, according to police, got into an argument with the 45-year-old victim in the vicinity of 35th Avenue and 94th Street at around 6:45 a.m. on July 23. The dispute soon turned violent and one of the suspects allegedly displayed a knife, cut the victim on his left forearm and stole his wallet, which contained approximately $200. The three suspects then fled the scene on foot.

The victim was transported by EMS to NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst in stable condition.

Police sources said it is unclear what sparked the initial argument.

The alleged suspects are all described as males with medium complexions and medium builds.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
