LOWER EAST SIDE, Manhattan (WABC) -- Police are searching for several suspects after two men were stabbed, one fatally, inside a park in Manhattan on Thursday.
The attack happened just after 8:30 p.m. at Hester Street and Chrystie Street inside Sara D. Roosevelt Park on the Lower East Side.
One of the victims was stabbed in the torso while the other was stabbed in the chest.
Both were taken to Bellevue Hospital. One was pronounced dead at the hospital and the other, a 24-year-old man, is expected to survive.
The attack appeared to happen at, or right around, a homeless camp.
Eyewitness News reporter Sonia Rincon spoke with a man who said he and others sleep in that area and that drinking and fighting are not uncommon.
At around the same time Friday night, in the same park, one block up, a 65-year-old man was slashed in the face with an unknown sharp object.
It's not clear if these incidents are connected in any way.
Police are looking for four male suspects in this most recent attack.
