A late evening at a trendy New York City bowling alley devolved into chaos after a group of suspects beat and stabbed a 21-year-old patron over an unknown dispute.

The bowler was repeatedly kicked and punched in the face and body in the altercation at The Gutter on Essex Street on the Lower East Side around 1:40 a.m. Monday, an NYPD spokesperson told Fox News Digital. 

When he fought back, he was slashed across the neck and stabbed in the torso with an “unknown sharp object,” the spokesperson said.
