2008_10_amc.jpgThe Daily News has more information about the multiple stabbings in Times Square on Friday night. Apparently the opening of Saw V at the AMC Empire 25 on 42nd Street had something to do with it: "Tension built after swarms of teens and young adults were trying to exit and enter theaters, including disappointed groups who couldn't get into sold-out shows." A police source called it "a tinderbox" and a witness described, "It seemed like hundreds of kids, roaming around in packs, screaming, yelling, running through the streets like wild animals." One of the victims, stabbed in the neck, is left partially paralyzed. The police, which made a few arrests, is having its gang unit investigate; a witness explained, "There were gangs all around the area, all over 42nd St. You can tell by their bandanas."
