Cops are hunting for a group of knife-wielding brutes who stabbed a 19-year-old multiple times in a Park Slope laundromat on Sept. 27.

The suspects picked a fight with the employees of the laundromat near Fourth Avenue and 14th Street at around 7:40 pm, when one of the fiends repeatedly plunged a knife into the teen’s torso, according to police.

First responders arrived on the scene and rushed the victim to Methodist Hospital for treatment, authorities said.

Another 40-year-old victim sustained bumps and bruises to his head and body, but refused medical treatment, cops said.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation remains ongoing, according to authorities.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

All calls are strictly confidential.

Reasonable discourse

Fred from Flatbush says:
Serious question: If you are a concealed carry permit holder (like retired cop or private security) and 4 guys approach you, and one stabs you, can you shoot all four of them in the heat of the moment?

Joe from Greenpoint says:
In NYC only if you are a cop. Otherwise, you are legally allowed to expose your neck and have it slit. That's about it.

Isn't it self-defense if you choose to arm yourself and carry a legal permit to carry in NY?
