NEW YORK CITY — A man was stabbed on the Upper East Side Friday afternoon after an altercation in a parking garage, fire officials and witnesses said.
The incident unfolded a little before 3 p.m. on 61st Street, near York Avenue, a spokesman for the FDNY said.
The victim was rushed to New York Hospital where he was listed in serious condition, said officials, who did not have further information about the incident.
A security employee at 425 E. 61st St., who did not provide his name, said the building manager and one of the building porters assaulted each other in the Quick Park parking garage, which can be accessed from the building via an elevator.
A building maintenance worker asked security to call an ambulance after the garage manager informed them of the fight, the security employee said.
"When the two men [who were fighting] came back up, they were both bleeding from their hands," the security worker said. "One was also pointing to his back. He was saying, 'I think I got stabbed here.' They were both blaming each other.
"One left in a police car and the other left in an ambulance," he added, but he couldn't identify which of the men was transferred to the hospital.
Police did not have any additional information about the incident.
