Man stabbed outside Yonkers strip club
A man was rushed to the hospital early this morning after police say he was stabbed outside a Yonkers strip club.
Investigators say a fight broke out between a group of men outside the City Lights gentlemen's club at 767 Yonkers Ave. around 3:45 a.m.
The front plate glass window of the Guardian Vape Shop at 775 Yonkers Ave. was also smashed as a result of the fight.
When police arrived, they say 22-year-old Christian Tigre, of Yonkers, became belligerent with officers and obstructed the police investigation. Further investigation showed Tigre had an active arrest warrant for criminal contempt, so he was placed under arrest. Tigre was transported to an area hospital to be treated for a laceration to his hand that he suffered during the fight.
About 10 minutes later, police got a call from officials at Montefiore Mount Vernon Hospital saying they had a 33-year-old stabbing victim who was attacked on Yonkers Avenue. They say the victim was being treated for a stab wound to his torso and laceration to his finger that may have been caused by an assault with a glass shard. Officials say that the injuries were not considered life-threatening.
The victim was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx. There is no word yet on his condition.
Police say there may be charges in connection with the violence.
