A 38-year-old man is dead following an "out-of-control" stabbing in New York City. Two other victims, a 31-year-old man and a 52-year-old woman, are recovering from their injuries. 

The suspect, a 30-year-old man, was taken into custody following the attack, however no charges have yet been filed against him. Authorities also discovered a "cutting instrument" at the scene.

According to the New York Post, the incident took place around 5:45 pm Sunday evening near Avenue A and East 14th Street in Manhattan's East Village. The trio were making their way down the sidewalk when they were jumped and stabbed. 

They were all rushed to nearby Bellevue Hospital, where the 38-year-old, who had his neck slashed, was declared dead. The other man and woman were slashed in the lower back and leg, were listed in stable and critical condition, respectively.



"The situation on 14th St is out of control," NYC Council Member Keith Powers wrote in a statement following the incident. "This is directly across the street from my district where many of my constituents walk every day. It's unacceptable to continue to have the conditions on the street remain status quo."

Powers reiterated his call for "a consistent and sustained presence of the NYPD" in the area, noting that more cops being stationed there had led to "marked improvement." He also urged elected officials and government agencies to support policies that would see "a dedicated NYPD presence to curb illicit activities, continued enforcement of illegal vendors, on-going attention to trash and sanitation cleanup, and more."

That area of East 14th Street has gotten progressively worse since the Covid-19 pandemic. Longtime resident Emre Sevindik explained to ABC7 in the wake of the violent attack that "the homeless population kind of took over the streets," and that since then, they have been doing drugs, attacking one another and the public, and generally causing a mess. Mayor Eric Adams called the block "disgusting," and vowed to do more, but little improvement has been made.
