JACKSON HEIGHTS, Queens -- Two people were stabbed less than two hours apart in the Jackson Height section of Queens Saturday night, police say.

The first incident happened at 7:35 p.m. as a 16-year-old was walking his dog at 80th and Northern Boulevard when he was approached by two men who asked him if he was down with the ABK, a local gang.

The victim replied, "I'm not into that." The suspects then allegedly stabbed him and the dog. The teen was taken to Elmhurst Hospital. The victim and the dog suffered non-life threatening wounds.

The second incident happened less than two hours later at 9 p.m. at the same location as a 22-year-old man was walking along the street and stabbed once in the back in an unprovoked attack, police say.

He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital with a non-life threatening wound.
