Police seek 4 men in connection to April 13 stabbing


Homicide detectives are looking for four men they believe could shed some light on an April 13 stabbing on Sedgwick Avenue that claimed the life of an Inwood man.

Police stopped short of calling the men suspects, but instead they want to question them over the stabbing death of Ronnie Gardner just before 11 p.m., on that Friday. Police found the 28-year-old at 2829 Sedgwick with stab wounds to his thigh. He was rushed to Saint Barnabas Hospital where he died. 

Police have yet to make an arrest in the case. 

The first man is described as having dark culy hair, and was last seen wearing a striped soccer jersey and a black hooded sweatshirt. A second man was last seen wearing a blue du-rag as well as dark clothing. 

A third man is said to have had close-cut black hair, and was last seen wearing a red and black sweatshirt, gray pants and black sneakers. The last man was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and black sneakers.
