Security Guard Stabbed Trying to Break Up Fight in the Bronx: NYPD

A security guard was stabbed as he was trying to break up a fight at Bay Plaza Mall in the Bronx last month, the NYPD says.

On March 13 shortly before midnight, two men got into a dispute at a gym inside the shopping center in Baychester, police said.

The security guard went over to help and waited for assistance to take the men outside to the parking lot, officials said.

Then as one of the men went in to stab another man the guard stepped in to help but was stabbed in the process, authorities said.

He was stabbed several times and then the suspects ran away, police said.

The security guard was taken to Jacobi Hospital to be treated, the NYPD said. He was later released and is still recovering at home, officials said.

The NYPD is looking for six men, seen on surveillance video (above). Police said the men are 18-25 years old.
