Three people were stabbed by a man with a machete in Brooklyn early Saturday. According to police, the incident happened outside of the Africa House Banquet and Catering Hall, at Bedford and Snyder Avenues, around 2:40 a.m. this morning.
The four men were reportedly arguing when the suspect pulled out a machete and started whacking at the other three; it's unknown what they were fighting about. The News reports that a 19-year-old victim was stabbed in the neck, and taken to Kings County Hospital in critical condition. A 20-year-old victim who was stabbed in the chest was also taken there, along with a 34-year-old victim, who was stabbed in the hand.
According to the Post, "The victims are being uncooperative with police at this time so it wasn’t immediately clear what sparked the violence." Police add the investigation is ongoing. This was one of several incidents over the last couple years involving machetes.
