Police are searching for three suspects who are wanted for allegedly stabbing and robbing a man in Jackson Heights last month.

The suspects, according to police, got into an argument with the 45-year-old victim in the vicinity of 35th Avenue and 94th Street at around 6:45 a.m. on July 23. The dispute soon turned violent and one of the suspects allegedly displayed a knife, cut the victim on his left forearm and stole his wallet, which contained approximately $200. The three suspects then fled the scene on foot.

The victim was transported by EMS to NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst in stable condition.

Police sources said it is unclear what sparked the initial argument.

The alleged suspects are all described as males with medium complexions and medium builds.
