Two individuals were stabbed in two separate incidents, one leaving a dog injured as well, just hours apart around the same Jackson Heights location, according to police.

A 16-year-old was walking his dog at the intersection of Northern Boulevard and 80th Street, after 7 p.m. on Saturday, when he was attacked by two suspects. He was stabbed in the abdomen and the dog was also stabbed in the incident, according to the NYPD.

Multiple reports indicated that the victim was asked if he was “down with ABK [Always Banging Kings],” a local gang. A spokesperson said police are investigating a gang connection.

He was removed to the hospital in stable condition.

The second incident occurred at 9 p.m., in front of 80-03 Northern Blvd. A 23-year-old male was stabbed in the back by an unknown male with a sharp object, according to police. The victim was approached from behind. The suspects also referenced ABK in this incident, according to reports.

He was also removed to the hospital in stable condition.

Police are investigating whether the two incidents are connected, the spokesperson said.
