JACKSON HEIGHTS, Queens (PIX11) — A group of 10 men are wanted for assaulting, and then robbing, a teenager the afternoon of March 29, police said.
The 16-year-old was driving a scooter, with two other men as passengers, about 3:45 p.m near 37th Avenue and 82nd Street. Police said a large group accosted the teen and demanded his vehicle; they proceeded to assault the driver and his passengers.
The teenager was stabbed once in the back, police said. Afterward, the thieves took the scooter, $20 cash and an iPhone from the victims — the property had a total worth of more than $1,800.
A bystander transported the victim to a nearby hospital, were he was listed in stable condition. Police are still looking for the suspects, who fled toward Roosevelt Avenue — one of those suspects was captured on camera.
