MANHATTAN - A pregnant teenager was stabbed in the back of the head as the Dominican Day Parade drew to a close in Midtown on Sunday.

Police said the 16-year-old girl was attacked after 4 p.m. at the corner of 47th Street and 7th Avenue.

The incident may have been sparked by an argument between her boyfriend and some men, the New York Post reported.

Police arrested a 16-year-old man and two 20-year-old men, they said. The suspects were not identified and charges are still pending.

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment, police said.
