Police are searching for a man wanted for the violent attack of three teenagers in Williamsburg over the weekend.

On Saturday May 25, around 2 a.m., the suspect got into a verbal dispute with the three teens—a 16-year-old male, a 16-year-old female and a 17-year-old female—near Flushing Avenue and Broadway.

The argument quickly escalated and the man pulled out a knife and stabbed the 16-year-old boy in the back of the head and twice in his torso. He then stabbed the 16-year-old girl in her forearm and the 17-year-old in her torso.

Following the attack, the three teens walked into nearby NYC Health/Woodhull hospital where they received treatment for their injuries and are in stable condition, according to police.

The suspect is seen on surveillance camera video wearing a grey t-shirt, dark pants and dark sneakers.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
