Fight at ‘Problematic’ Gravesend Sports Bar Ends in Stabbing

A man was stabbed multiple times in the early morning hours of Sat., Nov. 17 after an altercation at a Gravesend bar that, cops say, has been a hotspot for the 62nd Precinct.

According to authorities, around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, two men stepped outside the Tijuana Sports Bar at 475 Kings Highway to fight when one of the men was pushed to the ground and stabbed multiple times “throughout the body.”

The 37-year-old victim — who had stab wounds in his upper body and abdomen — was removed to NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island where he’s since been listed in stable condition.

Cops say the attacker fled the scene in a taxi.

“It’s been a problematic location,” a police source said of the watering hole, located just off the corner of McDonald Avenue, “but we do a lot of enforcement there.”
