The New York City Police Department on Sunday released a new photo of one of the more than a dozen suspects accused in a massive brawl near a Times Square migrant shelter where a 17-year-old was stabbed. 

The stabbing attack unfolded at approximately 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the vicinity of West 42nd Street and 7th Avenue, steps from the Candler Building, a vacant office tower-turned-migrant shelter, according to New York Daily News. 

Eight individuals remain sought in connection to the attack, including five males described as having a light complexion and three other males described as having a medium complexion, the NYPD said Sunday. 

Police have already released photos of the eight individuals who remain at large.

Sunday’s new image better depicted one of the suspects, seen wearing a blue jacket, who had hidden his face.

Six people, including five teenagers, already have been arrested in connection with that stabbing. 

The 17-year-old stabbed in the back is believed to be a migrant from Nicaragua, WABC reported.

“A physical altercation ensued, and the individuals repeatedly punched and kicked the victim about the body,” police said in a press release. “The victim also sustained a stab wound to the back and was transported by EMS to NYC Health and Hospitals/Bellevue in stable condition. The individuals fled the location on foot and were last seen entering the Times Square subway station.”

He – and three 16-year-olds and two 14-year-olds – are facing charges of gang assault, assault and weapons possession. Colome was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on Saturday and remains held on Rikers Island on $100,000 bond, the newspaper reported.


The incident happened in the same area where two NYPD officers were attacked by a gang of migrants earlier this month. Seven of the 11 migrants suspected of being involved in that attack have since been indicted.
