7 suspects wanted in Bronx deli melee, Investigators say it all began around 4:30 a.m. Sunday when five men and two women walked into the J.A.M.W. Deli and Grocery on Castle Hill Avenue in Parkchester and proceeded to get into an argument with three men inside.
A fight broke out and two of the men were stabbed in the torso while the other suffered multiple facial fractures.
The fight then moved outside, where one witness saw a victim being beaten up.
“They were kicking the daylights out of one kid next to a tree here, then they took him to the window here next to the grocery store, they kept beating him up,” said one witness.
One of the men who was stabbed was treated and released from the hospital.
The other two victims remain hospitalized.
Police say it is unclear if the victims knew their attackers.
Both the store’s clerk and a witness tell NY1 they believe the group was drinking and that alcohol may have played a part in the brawl.
They say the attackers are teenagers or in their early 20s.
