Police search for 4 in teen stabbing
LAUDERHILL, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police are searching for four suspects who stabbed a teenager in a South Florida neighborhood.
According to police, the 15-year-old male was stabbed multiple times in the torso near the 2900 block of Northwest 56th Avenue, Tuesday around 3:30 p.m.
The victim’s twin brother said they were walking down 56th Avenue in Lauderhill to a relative’s birthday party, when four attackers came out of an apartment complex in the area. "They hit my brother in the back of the head. Then my brother tried to grabbed them and they stabbed him three times and they just left," said Jahni Dixon.
Police said the incident started at the teen's Oakland Park school and ended in Lauderhill. They are now looking for four attackers. "This is some kind of altercation that started at their school in Oakland Park," said Lauderhill Police Captain Rick Rocco.
The teen’s family gathered outside the Broward Health Medical Center where he was transported. "After all that he went through he put his hands up," said his mother Alasia Terry.
Police have been talking to several witnesses and want anyone with information to call police.
Terry said they will be at peace once the attackers are behind bars. "They tried to take his life but they didn’t take his life because God has him ... he's still breathing," said Terry.
The family said there was an argument with the attackers over a girl at school, and they don’t believe they attend the same school.
If you have any information on the four suspects responsible for this stabbing, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
