Upon arrival, contact was made with the victim who was being treated for lacerations to his back, left eye brow, and several scratches and bruises to his face, arms and body.

The victim stated that at roughly 8:30 p.m. he was walking in the area of Nye Gade, also known as Garden Street, when three masked black males rushed him from behind.

He further explained that one of the male individuals put a black firearm to his head and pistol whipped him while another male came up to him with a long thin kitchen knife and stabbed him in his back.
