The motorcycle gangs the “Whatever Riders” and the “Wicked Riders” just can’t put what one bar owner calls “beef from a party two weeks ago” to rest, according to a police report from an incident yesterday where a man was stabbed at a Jersey City bar.

According to the police report, a 27-year-old was stabbed around 2:40 am Sunday morning outside the Tres Cuartos bar on Summit Avenue in Jersey City by an “unknown actor”, who then disappeared down Charles Street towards Central Avenue.
Two female friends of the victim say the assailant punched him in the nose before stabbing him in the right arm, hitting an artery and causing major blood-loss as he stumbled across the street and collapsed in front of the bar, police said.
Eye witnesses stated they were unsure what type of weapon was used to stab the victim, officials said.
Paramedics rushed him to the operating room of the Jersey City Medical Center and witnesses described the attacker as drunk, about 5’5 and heavy-set with dark skin, authorities said.
According to police, the owner of Tres Cuartos claims “the fight is from an after-hours party that happened in Newark, NJ two weeks ago” between the two rival motorcycle gangs.
Officials also noted that there was a heavy amount of blood on the sidewalk when they arrived at the crime scene.
The incident marks the second motorcycle gang-related stabbing in Jersey City in the past week.
On December 7th, members of the “Whatever Riders” were reportedly involved in a street fight that lead to a stabbing at Mango’s Lounge on Linden Avenue. That same night, “Whatever Rider” member Victor Navarro, 35, was arrested for illegal possession of a handgun (h/t The Jersey Journal).
