Police are looking for four women they say stabbed a 14-year-old girl in her thigh with a kitchen knife and pepper-sprayed a 20-year-old woman after an argument in Lower Manhattan over the weekend, authorities say.
According to the NYPD, the teenager and 20-year-old were by Bowling Green Park, near State and Bridge streets, around 9:40 p.m. Saturday when they encountered the four suspects. It's not clear what they argued about, but cops say one of the four suspects pepper-sprayed the 20-year-old while another stabbed the teenager.
The suspects then fled the scene, running into the Bowling Green subway station. Police released surveillance images of them from that location (above).
