  • Off-Duty Officer Stabbed During Overnight Incident (Chelsea)

    Police are searching for several suspects after an off-duty police officer was stabbed early this morning during a fight outside a Chelsea nightclub.

    Police say the officer was walking with friends near 28th Street and 10th Avenue at around 3 a.m. when they got into an argument with another group.

    The NYPD says the officer tried to diffuse the situation and walked away, but one of the other men stabbed him in the hip. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the officer was treated at the hospital for his injuries and has since been released.

    Investigators are now looking for three suspects. They are looking at surveillance video from the area.

    According to local workers, the neighborhood's nightlife occasionally erupts in violence.

    "Sometimes you have problem over here because of the clubs, sometimes people get stabbed, fighting. This is what's going on in the neighborhood," said the merchant.

    This is the fourth off-duty law enforcement officer involved in a violent incident since last weekend. Officers shot three men during altercations in Queens, the Bronx and Brooklyn.

      How awful.

      Some of the clubs are just completely out of hand.

      I long for the old Chelsea, when things weren't so scary.

      Oh well...
