3 men stabbed after Flushing nightclub fight

Three men were stabbed early Friday morning as a result of a dispute in a nightclub just off Main Street in downtown Flushing, police said.

The three men, described as Asian and in their 20s, were stabbed in their torsos at about 4:50 a.m. inside of 135-41 37th Ave., a nightclub with the words “Hyper Hyper” displayed in front, police said.

The men were rushed to New York Hospital Medical Center Queens, where they were reported to be in stable condition, police said.

Police announced no arrests and were investigating.

Police closed off the segment of 37th Avenue just off Main Street for much of Friday morning. A trail of blood led from a stairwell outside a side door and onto the street.

A metal detector stands at the main entrance of the club. A sign inside reads: “Warning- Anyone found possessing, using, or selling controlled substances shall be evicted and subject to arrest- Management.”

A sign in Chinese indicates that no one is admitted to the club after 4 a.m.

The club is attached to an underground food court, which has its primary entrance on Main Street.

A friend of the owner of the club, who said he goes by the name of Dixie, was surprised by the stabbings.

“They never had a problem like this before” he said. “They’re not even sure [the injured men] were patrons.”

But a man who lives on the block disagreed.

“This place is a lot of trouble,” said the man, who asked to remain anonymous.
