Police are looking for a group of people they say beat and stabbed a 36-year-old man just a block from the heart of Times Square.
Investigators say the victim got into an argument with the group around 3:15 a.m. April 30 on Eighth Avenue.
Another group ran over and began punching and kicking the victim, cops said. They also threw a garbage can at him and stabbed him three times. They then took his sunglasses and phone, before running away on 44th Street towards Seventh Avenue.
The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital and is expected to be okay.
