According to 102nd Precinct detectives, on Saturday, Dec. 5, around 3:30 a.m., the 23-year-old victim got into an argument with the suspect “about traffic” while on the parkway near Metropolitan Avenue.

The victim was rushed to Brookdale Hospital where he was treated and released.
The suspect is described as a light-skinned black man in his mid-20s, approximately 5-feet, 8-inches tall.
