16-year-old New York boy may have been stabbed by another teen in romantic feud over girlfriend: cops

On Wednesday, police officials said a 16-year-old boy who was stabbed in the stomach outside his high school may have been assaulted by a romantic rival in a fight over a girlfriend.

The young victim was seriously injured as he left the International School for the Humanities in the Bronx with his girlfriend around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, NYPD Chief James Essig said at a press briefing.

“He is in critical condition. So it’s not a coincidence. He [was] purposefully,” Essig told reporters.

“We believe that the perpetrator and the victim may fight over the same girl,” he explained.

Essig noted that the attacker, who remained at large on Wednesday, allegedly met with the victim’s girlfriend, who also fled.

“Witnesses who know these two people say they have been arguing about this for the past few months,” he said.
