A 16-year-old boy was stabbed in an altercation with several young men at the subway station at Central Park West and 96th Street around 1:45 a.m. on Monday, according to the NYPD.
The youth had stab wounds in his neck, an NYPD spokesperson said. He was taken to St. Luke’s hospital, where his condition has been upgraded to stable. So far he is not talking to police, the spokesperson said. No arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing.
The attackers were described by police as “a group of males, who fled on foot into the streets.” The station was closed temporarily after the incident.
A friend of the victim told WSR that the boy is a junior in high school. He is not from the UWS, but has been staying with a friend near Lincoln Center recently.
