MANHATTAN — A teenager was stabbed multiple times in broad daylight following a dispute near Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem late Monday afternoon, authorities said.

The victim, 19, was stabbed in the arm and shoulder just before 5 p.m. on East 124th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues, police and fire officials said.

He was "bleeding a lot," a fire official said, but his injuries were not believed to be life threatening. He was taken to Harlem Hospital.

Cops took a man into custody shortly after the attack, a police source said. He had not yet been charged as of early Monday evening.

The nature of the dispute was not immediately clear, police said.
