MIDDLE VILLAGE, Queens — A man who was attacked by teenagers in Queens Friday night is holding an event with mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa.

The incident occurred Friday night at 9 p.m. at 75th Street and Juniper Boulevard in Middle Village, the NYPD said. A 44-year-old man was walking his dog in the area when the teens attacked him, hitting him over the head with a bottle. The man received cuts to the top of his head and lip.

No arrests have been made, the investigation is ongoing.

The victim — identified by Republican mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa as New York City firefighter John Burke — held a joint press conference Saturday with Curtis Sliwa, noted for his founding of the Guardian Angels and attempted tough-on-crime stance. The Angels will be going on patrols after the event.

Sliwa took this attack to call for more police presence in the park and for a dusk curfew. And he blasted Mayor Bill de Blasio for the rise in crimes across the city.

A spokesman for Democratic mayoral candidate Eric Adams also blasted this Middle Village park attack.

“There has been a troubling increase in violent crime in New York, and Eric is pushing a comprehensive plan to make our streets safer, including new resources for law enforcement and smart deployment of police that prevents lawlessness.”
