Farmingdale, NY – Slashing Incident at Mystique Gardens Leads to Pedestrian Accident
Farmingdale, NY (April 20, 2019) – Early this morning, April 20th, police were called to the scene of a slashing incident where three people were then struck in a pedestrian accident.
Originally, police were called to the scene of a disturbance at the Mystique Gardens on Conklin Street around 2:45 a.m. They discovered that a man had been stabbed in the neck during a fight that involved several individuals.
Witnesses told police that the man was bleeding from the face and neck area. When officers arrived at the scene, they found that the man had run into a parking lot. Officers helped him when a Dodge minivan ran into a Nissan, causing it to spin. Three people, including the man with the stab wounds and the officer, were struck by a spinning vehicle.
The minivan then drove away from the scene without stopping. Police now believe that the driver of the minivan might have been involved in the slashing and continue to search for the person responsible.
Multiple people were hospitalized due to the incident. The investigation continues.
