The city has seen more than 40 percent more serious crimes in the past month than in the same period in 2021, according to the New York City Police Department.

In January 2022, New York City Mayor Eric Adams unveiled a comprehensive plan to curb the rise in crime. That included more foot patrols and the revival of a plainclothes unit called Neighborhood Safety Teams.

The Dave and Busters stabbing is the second stabbing in Times Square in less than 24 hours. In the early hours of April 30, a man was stabbed at a hot dog stand in the area. His condition was unknown.

In May 2021, a man was also robbed on the third floor of the restaurant at 6 p.m., the New York Post reported at the time.

On the day of the Dave & Busters stabbing, Mayor Eric Adams spoke of crime-reduction efforts: “We also want to raise the expectations of our schools, our [Human Resources Administration], from our Ministry of Health and Mental Hygiene. We have the police officers under constant scrutiny. It’s time for everyone to be scrutinized.’
