SOUNDVIEW, the Bronx (PIX11) — Four would-be robbers stabbed a man in the face while attempting to steal a 12-year-old boy’s scooter in the Bronx, police said.

The group hopped out of a white pickup truck near Colgate and Watson avenues around 6:55 p.m. June 20, and approached the victims, according to authorities. One of the assailants stabbed the adult victim, 23, in the face, then the group tried to snatch the pre-teen’s scooter, officials allege.

When they couldn’t wrest control of the scooter, the group got back in the truck and drove off, police said. The adult victim was transported to Jacobi Medical Center in what police described as stable condition.

Investigators released surveillance images of the four suspects wanted for questioning.
