Watch Out at the Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer Subway Station


This story is much more frightening due to the fact that it happened in the middle of the afternoon.

Yesterday, around 3:30pm, NYPD authorities believe two Hispanic men stabbed three African-American men at the Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer subway station in Queens. The bloody encounter was a result of an argument between the two parties; two of the African-American males were stabbed in the stomach and another was stabbed in the leg. The suspected perpetrators escaped the station while the three males were rushed to the nearby Jamaica hospital. They are currently in critical but stable condition.

Soon after the attack, trains headed to the J and E line hub were shut down due to the investigation. According to Gothamist, the MTA shut down service to the station around 4:50 p.m. but it looks like it’s up and running now. However, no word on the whereabouts of the stabbers at the station.

So, yeah, watch your back.
