According to police, a 32-year-old man had just dismounted from his bike at 4:20 p.m. on Sun., May 16, in the Lower East Side park, at Forsyth and Broome Sts., when a stranger stood up from a park bench, approached him and stabbed him once in each arm.
The attacker then fled on foot. The victim was transported by E.M.S. to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition.
