Six-Year-Old Girl Stabbed on Pike Street When Father Mugged at Knifepoint
Early this morning, a six-year-old girl was stabbed in the stomach during a robbery while walking with her dad, according to several published reports.
The father was reportedly accosted by two male suspects at about 12:30am near Monroe and Pike Streets. One of the men apparently drew a blade and tried to stab the 55-year-old victim, when the child got in between them, cops said.
It’s believed that the daughter intentionally intervened on behalf of her father. She was taken to Bellevue Hospital to undergo surgery, and is not believed to be in life-threatening condition.
The two robbers stole jewelry and a credit card before fleeing on foot in an unknown direction.
