SHEEPSHEAD BAY — A fight broke out early morning Sunday in front of a 24-hour bagel shop in Sheepshead Bay.
On Sunday, December 22, around 04.35 a.m. in front of Brooklyn Bagel Boys at 2829 Coney Island Avenue, two young men got into a verbal argument that escalated into a physical altercation, cops said.
Cops said the two individuals did not know each other, but started their verbal argument “over girls” at Cave restaurant and hookah lounge, on McDonald Avenue.
One of the young men, the 22-year-old victim, then went to the bagel store and the suspect followed him. The victim was stabbed as the altercation escalated in front of the bagel shop causing lacerations to his eye and left hand. The victim was removed to an area hospital and is in stable condition.
