Two men were stabbed—one fatally—in an attack that took place in South Ozone Park Wednesday.

Police received a 911 call at around 3 p.m. yesterday that two men had been assaulted in the vicinity of Lefferts Boulevard and Rockaway Boulevard.

When police arrived at the scene, they found a 20-year-old man with a stab wound to his chest and another man, also 20, with a stab wound to his right leg.

Both victims were transported to Jamaica Hospital, where the man with the chest wound was pronounced dead, while the other victim was listed in stable condition.

Police said that the stabbings stemmed from a dispute the victims were having with a group of men. There have been no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.

The name of the deceased man has not yet been released, pending family notification.
