HELL'S KITCHEN — A pair of teens were stabbed in Hell’s Kitchen Tuesday afternoon, officials said.
The two 17-year-old boys got into a dispute with another person or persons at 57th Street and Ninth Avenue before it escalated in front of 310 W. 55th St., near Eighth Avenue, where they were stabbed multiple times at about 2:10 p.m., an NYPD spokesman said.
Both victims suffered minor wounds and were taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital in stable condition, the spokesman added. The teens were not cooperating with investigators.
Blood and discarded clothing could be seen on a bench under the West 55th Street building's white wrought-iron awning.
Local Worker David Acevedo, 34, called the attacks “so sad,” saying they reminded him of another in July where three high school students were stabbed nearby on West 52nd Street.
“This is within months,” Acevedo said. “It’s a lot safer [in Hell’s Kitchen], but you can never be too safe. It’s the city.”
There were no immediate suspects.
