iPhone Theft Attempt On Queens Subway Platform Leaves Three Men Stabbed

Three men were stabbed while on a Queens subway platform Monday afternoon when two other men tried to steal an iPhone from one of the victims, New York City police said.

The three injured men were taken from the Jamaica Center-Parsons Archer platform -- the terminus of the E, J, and Z trains -- about 3 p.m. to Jamaica Hospital, where they were treated for nonlife-threatening injuries, police said.

The two attackers left the area, police said, and there were no immediate arrests. ___
