MOUNT EDEN, the Bronx — A man was stabbed during an attack by a group of men outside a Bronx apartment building last month, authorities said.

It happened on Sept. 10 around 6 p.m. in front of a residential building in the vicinity of Townsend Avenue and East 172nd Street in the Mount Eden neighborhood, police said. 

A group of four men approached the 54-year-old victim and began to assault him, authorities said.
