Group of 10 Suspects Violently Beat, Stab and Rob 16-Year-Old of Scooter in Jackson Heights

April 7, 2022 By Allie Griffin

Police are searching for a group of 10 suspects who beat, stabbed and robbed a 16-year-old of his scooter in Jackson Heights last week.

The 10 males — who wore hoods, hats and face masks to cover their faces — knocked the boy off the scooter and took the bike, his iPhone, backpack and cash at around 3:45 p.m. on March 29, police said.

The teen was driving a two-wheeled scooter on the sidewalk near the corner of 37th Avenue and 82nd Street with two friends riding on the back when the band of 10 approached them and demanded he hand over the scooter.

The teen and his passengers attempted to flee but were chased by the group. The group punched, kicked and pushed them to the ground, police said.

The 16-year-old fell into the roadway, where one assailant repeatedly beat him and stabbed him once in the back.

One of his passengers, meanwhile, was kicked, shoved and hit by several of the attackers, a video released by the NYPD shows.

The group fled with the boy’s $1,300 scooter, $500 iPhone XR, backpack and $20 cash. They fled toward Roosevelt Avenue, police said.

A good Samaritan who was driving by took the 16-year-old to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition.

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). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

NYC heaven for crime

The bail reform will help them, IF arrested. That’s why this kind of violence won’t stop anytime soon.
Thanks “progressives”, you screwed up our City.


“Who’s Next” was a 1971 rock album. Now it is an everyday concern for most New Yorkers.
