Footage shows gang attack similar to fatal stabbing of innocent teen

Police on Tuesday released video that captured the savage beatdown that left a 14-year-old boy critically injured — a gang attack that bore similarities to the mistaken-identity slaying of 15-year-old Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz.

Authorities are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the attackers who set upon the teen on June 18 on the Bronx River Parkway after he took a swim in the Bronx River with pals.

The group chased the boy onto the parkway near East Gun Hill Road, where they stabbed him several times in his torso, police said. He was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition.

So far, one suspect, Bronx resident Ramon Paulino, 21, has been charged with attempted murder, gang assault and assault in connection with the attack.

His case has been referred to federal prosecutors, though it was unclear why.

Several others seen in the disturbing cellphone footage remain on the loose.

In the clip, the group of about a dozen attackers are seen pummeling the teen between concrete barriers dividing traffic in full view of motorists in slow-moving traffic.

When police arrived, they found the boy unconscious and unresponsive.

The attack occurred just two days before Guzman-Feliz was dragged out of a deli and butchered by members of the notorious Trinitarios street gang.

Police sources believe the Trinitarios may also have been involved in the attack along the parkway.

Anyone with information about the June 18 incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). All calls are strictly confidential.
