A man remains in critical condition after being stabbed multiple times in Corona early Sunday.
Police say that two men approached the victim, 36, at around 5:25 a.m. in front of 46-04 108 St. where an argument ensued.
The dispute escalated and the victim was stabbed seven times by one of the men in his abdomen and side—before the suspect dropped the knife.
The second suspect picked up the knife and the victim’s chain from the ground and fled. The pair then got into a Honda Odyssey and drove off southbound on 108 Street.
The victim remains hospitalized at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center.
Both suspects are described as being between 25-30 years of age and being approximately 5 feet 11 inches tall. One is light-skinned and was seen wearing a tan cap, white T-shirt with a V on the back and a fanny pack across his chest.
The second suspect is dark-skinned and was wearing a red and black Michael Jordan jersey, a backwards red baseball cap, black pants and black and red sneakers.
