A teen was stabbed in the chest in front of a Sunnyside supermarket Saturday night after getting into a dispute with two men.
The victim, a 19-year-old male, got into an argument with the men in front of C-Town Supermarket on the corner of Greenpoint Ave and 42nd Street at around 9:35 p.m. The dispute escalated into a physical fight, according to the NYPD.
The 19-year-old man told police one of the males stabbed him with an unknown object in the left side of his chest.
The perpetrators fled on foot in an unknown direction, according to the teen. The victim was taken to Elmhurst General Hospital in stable condition.
Police said the investigation is ongoing.
The incident was at first mischaracterized by the Citizen App as a shooting.
