A bar dispute erupted into a stabbing at a Bayside restaurant early Friday morning, an NYPD spokesman said.

Officers responded to the Safari Beach Club at 40-05 Bell Blvd. shortly after 1 a.m. to investigate the reported incident.

According to the NYPD, two men — one 34 years old, the other in his 20s — got into some type of altercation. The younger man then allegedly stabbed the older man in the neck, police said.

Authorities have little information about the suspected attacker.

It was not clear if the argument began inside the business and spilled out onto the street or if the entire incident occurred on the sidewalk, police said.

The victim was taken to New York Hospital Queens and listed in critical condition, police said.

No arrests have been made and the incident remained under investigation, the NYPD said.

Times Ledger editors/staff:
Your online paper (and related community-focussed NYC news sites) seem to offer the best objective coverage.
Please do some timely due diligence in monitoring the content of the comments, and get the illiterate filth off of the page.
Thanks for your coverage.

I am surprised they caught the perp if that information is even accurate. That precincts biggest crime is usually a little drunken fist fight. There have been two accounts that I know of a cops son growing beer muscles on the blvd starting a altercation outside a bar and getting beat up then calling daddy to get the other kid arrested because he lost.

Disgusted from Flushing says:
To the people who are complaining that the story is inaccurate: the paper went to press with the information they had at the time. At some point I'm sure they will be updating the information and there will be more details. No matter what the real tragedy is that someone was stabbed multiple times. And for those of you who did witness it and didn't report what you saw to the authorities shame on you. The man who did the stabbing is dangerous and unstable if he could do that in a bar or on a busy street. And he should be allowed to remain free. I hope that he really has been arrested and that he is locked up for a long time

Anonymous woman from Queens says:
I'm not surprised. This bar is trash and so are the people that work there. They are completely insane. I am a young lady and 4 bouncers physically assaulted me grabbed me and dragged me across the floor of the kitchen to drag me to the back door for no reason at all. A bar back (someone that cleans dishes and replaces glasses) claimed I hit him which I swear on my grandmothers grave I never did because I wouldn't waste my time. I'm banned from going there for absolutely no reason other than the barrack being bitter that I don't like him. I was going to sue but I figured it's not worth my effort. Now After reading this article I am beyond thankful I no longer show up in such a horrible and dangerous place. This bar is poorly run and I'm glad the police finally got involved.

Maria, do you really believe Alfredo Centola is responsible for all the above comments? Al is the only Queens civic leader that cares above his community. He works very hard to prevent this type of behavior in our neighborhood businesses and schools. All the multi-name, hate filled postings come from a very well known local agitator, not Al.

Before your accuse a good man, know the facts. Don't be stupid.
