Five teenagers were stabbed after a wild scuffle broke out near a Queens school Monday afternoon, police said.
Two 15-year-old boys, a 16-year-old boy and two 17-year-old boys all suffered stab and cut wounds after the brawl on a street corner in Far Rockaway, the NYPD said.
The boys were among a large group of teenagers who began arguing around 4 p.m. near Mott Avenue and Central Avenue – just a few blocks from MS 53 and Success Academy – Far Rockaway, according to police.
It is unclear whether the young people involved were students at either school.
One of the 17-year-olds was stabbed in the left thigh and taken by EMS to Jamaica Hospital, the other was slashed in the left cheek and taken to St. John’s Episcopal Hospital.
One of the 15-year-olds was injured in the right hand and also taken to St. John’s Episcopal Hospital.
The police initially reported only the three injured, but the bloody mayhem didn’t stop there, as they later learned that two other teenagers who had suffered cuts in the same brawl came to St. John’s on their own.
The 16-year-old boy was slashed in the right thigh and right bicep, and the second victim, 15, was slashed in the chest, police said.
According to police, all five teenagers were in stable condition.
Police have not made any arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
