Teenager stabbed, smashed with scooter in East Village

It was an assault with a Razor. No, not a blade — a kick scooter.

A 19-year-old was smashed with the two-wheeled transporter and, more seriously, stabbed when three males ganged up to attack him in the East Village, police said.

Cops said a 14-year-old who was allegedly involved was arrested and charged with assault the day afterward. They are still looking for his two sidekicks.

The incident occurred on Sun., Oct. 3, around 5:45 p.m., in front of 254 E. Third St., just west of Avenue C. According to police, the trio punched the victim in the face, struck him with a metal scooter and stabbed him several times in the back and shoulder before fleeing on foot.

The victim was treated at and released from Bellevue Hospital.
