Detectives need the help of the public to find four animals responsible for violently stabbing and squirting young women in the financial district over the weekend.
On Monday night, the NYPD released video camera footage of the four female suspects wanted for the attack, which took place around 1 p.m. 21:40 on April 23 near State and Bridge Streets, across the road from Battery Park.
According to police sources, the two victims – a 14-year-old girl and a 20-year-old woman – were involved in a verbal altercation with the fearsome fireman for reasons that remain unknown and are under investigation.
The words then turned to violence, police said when one of the four women sprayed the 20-year-old woman in the face with pepper spray.
Authorities said another female perpetrator, pictured far left in the photo, then pulled out a kitchen knife and stabbed the girl in her left thigh.
After the attack, police reported, the perpetrators fled the scene and were last seen on their way into the Bowling Green subway station, about a block north of the intersection.
The incident was reported to 1st district. EMS treated the 20-year-old woman on the spot, but the 14-year-old girl was taken to New York Presbyterian-Lower Manhattan Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.
No one has been arrested in the ongoing investigation, police said.
