CROWN HEIGHTS — Two men were injured — one shot and the other stabbed — in different incidents along the West Indian Day Parade route Monday afternoon, the NYPD said, but both were expected to survive.
A 22-year-old man was shot in the torso in front of 672 Eastern Parkway at 4:47 p.m. and suffered a non-fatal wound, authorities said.
He was taken to Kings County Hospital where he is expected to live.
A 20-year-old man was stabbed near 667 Eastern Parkway, between New York and Brooklyn avenues, around 6 p.m Monday, police said.
The man, who police said was not likely to die was also taken to Kings County Hospital for treatment, the NYPD said.
Police couldn’t say who stabbed the man.
Also during the festivities, a man acting erratically punched two officers who were asking if he was OK minutes after 5 p.m. near Kingston Avenue and Eastern Parkway, police said.
The suspect, Ivans Jean-Pierre, 36, then bit one of the officers' hands and they shocked him with a stun gun, police said.
He and the officer he bit were treated at area hospitals, police said.
Jean-Pierre was high at the time, but officials didn't say on what substance.
Jean-Pierre was arrested for assault, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstruction of governmental administration, police said.
