Police are searching for two men who allegedly stabbed and robbed an individual outside a house in Astoria Monday.
On April 20, at around 8:55 p.m., the two suspects got into a dispute with a 24-year-old man outside 11-17 30th Rd., according to police.
One of the suspects stabbed the victim in the torso and leg with an unknown sharp object, police said.

I used to see 2 dumb dirt bikers riding on the paths of Astoria Park, shoreline, around 21st street, Broadway and all everyday except last week.. The guy riding the bike looks like the mushroom head in the picture. And the guy riding behind looks like the other guy in the picture. World is small. I will let the cops know when I see them again. Residents should report unlawful behavior instead of clapping if living in a “neighborhood” matters. They wide opened the prison doors unfortunately. Be ready for a steep spike in violent crimes…
I hardly see police cars patrolling our streets. I got my stimulus check in the mail but i am too scared to go outside and cash it. Ditmars is full of PPE on the sidewalks. My building is 80 percent empty and quiet though. Only the real Astorians the longterm residents stayed. Luckily we still have some which includes the Muslim growing community.
When they find these 2, put them in the freezer truck at Elmhurst Hospital. I hope the commenter’s grandmother is okay and won’t be scared to leave her home when she’s able to.
Thank your local city council for laxed criminal policies…..under their “leadership” NYC reverting back to the cesspool it was before Giuliani. Why Astoria keeps voting for them?!
This is so terrible. Please be careful out there.
There are police helicopters circling the neighborhood every freakin night and they couldn’t spot these 2 mushroom heads? Disgraceful
This happened in front of my grandmother’s house! The victim was screaming for help, by the time they got outside it was over. My brother had to clean up all the blood 🤦♀️. People are CRAZY over a damn phone.
