The NYPD released information on Tuesday about three individuals who allegedly attacked a man on Jan. 19 in front of 881 Freeman St.

At around 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 19, a 62-year-old man was allegedly approached by three unknown people who punched him multiple times. One of the suspects proceeded to display a knife and stab the victim multiple times in the abdomen while the other two individuals removed the man’s backpack, according to police.

The backpack contained keys and a wallet, as well as identification documents and multiple credit and debit cards, according to police.

The suspects fled westbound toward Prospect Avenue on foot, and EMS transported the victim to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition, police said.

A knife was recovered on the scene, according to the NYPD.

There were no updates Thursday afternoon, a police spokesperson said.
