Two Teens Stabbed After Attacker Says He Wants ‘All White People Dead’

The 14-year-old and 16-year-old were eating with their parents when a man unexpectedly stabbed them.

According to ABC7NY, the 16-year-old was stabbed in the back and the 14-year-old was stabbed in the thigh.

Hutcherson was previously arrested 17 times.

Sources told the New York Post that “[e]veryone was just running,” adding that the scene was “chaotic.”

The assailant has been booked on attempted murder, assault, and endangering the welfare of a child.
