JACKSON HEIGHTS — A man was stabbed several times in his Jackson Heights apartment by a group of men, including one teen, in a possible gang-related incident, according to documents from the Queens district attorney.

At about 1:30 p.m. Dec. 2, about eight men forced open the door of an apartment, at 35-08 95th St., and repeatedly stabbed its occupant, according to the DA.

One of the men, 16-year-old Kelvin Guzman, of 34-30 100th St. in Corona, was observed standing over the wounded man with a knife in his hand by an eyewitness, the DA said.

The witness then saw Guzman leave the apartment with a bloody knife in his hand, and police observed Guzman on surveillance video putting an unknown object into his pants as he exited the building, the documents said.

Guzman was later arrested and told officers, “I got called to say that the Latin Kings had a hookie on 95 and 35, everybody met on the corner and agreed to go inside,” the documents said.

Guzman told police that the group of men split into two and he heard screaming, observed another man named Miguel come down a flight of stairs and that there was “blood everywhere,” according to the documents from the DA’s office.
