A man was stabbed in the neck with a “sharp object” during an alleged altercation at a migrant processing center on Randall’s Island in New York City. The New York Police Department confirmed the stabbing, indicating that law enforcement responded to a call at the processing center around 3:17 p.m. When they arrived, they found a 24-year-old man with a stab wound to his neck. The weapon used in the attack was described as a “sharp object,” though the police could not immediately confirm if it was a knife.
Photos obtained by Fox News Digital showed apparent blood drops on the recently fallen snow at the scene. The injured man was rushed to Harlem Hospital Center, where he is reported to be in stable condition.
Three individuals have been taken into custody in connection with the incident, although no charges have been filed yet. Video footage obtained by Fox News Digital shows officers handcuffing two individuals at the migrant processing center.
This incident follows a similar attack on January 6 at Randall’s Island, where a 24-year-old man was stabbed to death at the processing center. The victim in that case succumbed to a stab wound in his chest.
Since last spring, over 157,600 migrants have arrived in New York City, according to city data. In August 2023, Mayor Eric Adams designated Randall’s Island as a tax-payer funded tent city for illegal migrants, with a capacity for 57,000 individuals. The city has been grappling with a significant migrant crisis, with more than 50,000 migrants in its shelter system. Mayor Adams recently declared a “state of emergency” in the city to address the crisis, emphasizing the urgent need for solutions. As of now, the identities of the suspects involved in the recent stabbing have not been released, and Mayor Adams’ office has not responded to requests for comment.
