A teenager was stabbed and beaten in Woodside last month by a group of seven men.
The victim, 19, had arranged to sell his Yeezy sneakers via Snapchat and was set upon by the suspects at the meeting place where the deal was supposed to be done.
The young man was standing in front of 48-06 46th St. at around 10:35 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15 when the group of men arrived and punched and kicked him—with one of the suspects stabbing the teenager in the back.
The suspects took $200 in cash and the Nike Raptors that were on the victim’s feet. The victim was not in possession of the Yeezy sneakers at the time of the attack.
The suspects then fled the scene on foot.
The police have released video and photos of five of the seven suspects and are seeking help in identifying them. The suspect who allegedly stabbed the victim was believed to be wearing a hood, mask and eyeglasses (far left in photo).
The 19-year-old was transported by EMS to Elmhurst Hospital and was listed in stable condition at the time.
