Bronx detectives are searching for two teens who assaulted and stabbed a 16-year-old in Mott Haven earlier this month.

According to the NYPD, on Oct. 8, at 12:11 p.m., one person punched a 16-year-old boy in the face and another placed him in a chokehold on the roof of 828 E. 149 St. The violence then escalated as one of the perps stabbed him once in the back and twice in his left leg before they stole his backpack.

The crooks ran out of the building and fled the scene eastbound on East 149 Street. EMS transported the victim to Harlem Hospital in critical but stable condition.

The individuals are described as Black males, 16-18 years old, who wore black-colored clothing.
