BROOKLYN, N.Y. (PIX11) – Police are looking for two suspects wanted for attacking two men after an argument ensued in Brooklyn on Aug. 1.
Police said a 35-year-old man and a 51-year-old man were talking while standing at the corner of Fulton Street and Shepherd Avenue around 9:15 p.m. when the two suspects approached the intersection on a moped.
An argument broke out between the two groups, police said, and the suspects got off their moped to confront the victims. That’s when one of the suspects took out a knife and slashed the 35-year-old man multiple times in the back, according to authorities.
Police said another suspect punched the 51-year-old man on the side of the head from behind him. The man fell forward and hit his head on a metal fence, authorities said.
Police said both men then fled the scene traveling south on Shepherd Avenue on their moped.
The 51-year-old man was transported to Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center.
