Boy, 15, stabbed in head on NYC street as teen violence explodes

A 15-year-old boy was stabbed in the head on a Queens street near his school on Wednesday afternoon amid a wave of violence targeting teens in the Big Apple.

The young victim was attacked by a ski mask-wearing assailant moments after leaving August Martin High School around 2:50 p.m., police and sources said.

The suspect snuck up on the teen and plunged a knife into his head and shoulder near Guy R Brewer Boulevard and 112th Avenue in South Jamaica, cops and the sources said.

EMTs rushed the wounded boy to Cohen Children’s Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition.

It’s unclear what led to the bloodshed and the attacker was in the wind as of Wednesday night, police said. 

The stabbing came after a brutal day of knifings across New York City Tuesday when four students were stabbed and slashed in three separate incidents on school grounds. 

Last week, two teenagers were killed and at least six others were wounded in a rash of citywide violence.

“There is always talk about too many guns on the street, and there are, but it seems like every teen has a knife,” a Brooklyn detective told The Post about the troubling trend of knifings among teens.

“You think you are getting punched and all of a sudden you are bleeding because someone stabbed you in the chest or back.”
