A group of teenagers ganged up and stabbed an 18-year old in Forest Hills earlier this month following a dispute over a girl.
The victim agreed to meet one of the attackers outside P.S. 175 at 64-35 102nd Street at around 4:15 pm May 5, but was instead greeted by more than 20 teenagers who chased him down the street to 102-34 65th Road where they punched and kicked him, police said.
During the attack Kevin Alvarez, 17, of Jamaica, allegedly stabbed the victim in the back with a knife, police said.
According to DNAinfo, Alvarez got in to a dispute with the victim over a girl.
The victim suffered numerous lacerations to his hands and was taken to a local hospital, police said.
On May 10, Alvarez was arrested and charged with gang assault, assault with a weapon, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the Queens District Attorney’s Office.
His bail was set at $150,000 and his next court appearance is May 25.
