With stabbings on the rise, a local incident sent police on a manhunt for a possible knife-wielding suspect.

Police responded to a report of an emotionally disturbed person just before 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday at Bhrags Home Care at 9805 Foster Avenue. Ironically, the incident took place practically across the street from the 69th Precinct, located at 9720 Foster Avenue.

At the scene, a man who appeared to be bleeding from his face, was treated by medics and transported to a local area hospital. Officers were questioning employees of the home care business and were looking at surveillance footage from security cameras.

As of press time, the alleged suspect was described as a black male in his 30s, about 5’9”wearing a bloody white t-shirt. The suspect may have fled on foot towards East 99th Street and police searched the L-train station on Rockaway Parkway.

Anyone with information in regards to any of these shootings is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.CO M or texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
