MOUNT HOPE, Bronx (WABC) -- Police are investigating the death of a Bronx teen who was stabbed during an attempted robbery

17-year-old Carl Ducasse was stabbed near 175th Street and Walton Avenue in the Mount Hope section.

A man approached him at about 11:30 p.m. Friday.

When Ducasse said he didn't have any money, the man tapped the teen's pocket, and told him he heard a jingle.

The teen said the sound was just his keys, and the man walked away.

Moments later, a second man, who was part of a group standing across the street, walked up to the teen and stabbed him.

His parents say their youngest son was on his way to get a milkshake.
