Five men were injured with a broken glass bottle — including one victim who was stabbed in the stomach and another who was slashed in the neck — during a bloody fight outside a bar in Sunnyside early in the morning of Saturday, Sept. 30, according to police from the 108th Precinct.

A verbal dispute and an alleged assault inside Bar 43, located at 4306 43rd St., spilled out onto the street at around 1:40 a.m., where at least one suspect attacked the victims with the sharp object, according to police and published reports.

Police responded to a 911 call of an assault at the location and when officers arrived on the scene, they found a 29-year-old man with a stab wound to the stomach, a 34-year victim who had been slashed in the neck and a 41-year-old who had been slashed in the side of his face, the NYPD said. A 29-year-old man was found with a slash wound to the right ear and another 29-year-old had a minor laceration, police said.

EMS arrived at the scene and took three of the victims to Elmhurst Hospital, while one was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, where they were all treated and released, cops said. The 29-year-old with the minor cut refused medical attention.

A 33-year-old man was taken into custody as a “person of interest,” but has not been charged as of Monday morning, Oct. 2, cops said.

It is unclear what sparked the initial argument.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
