THE BRONX -

Police have released a photo of one of the three men sought in connection with a fatal stabbing near Morris Avenue last week.

The man is about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a slim build, according to police. The picture shows him with cornrowed hair, a black shirt and blue jeans. A second suspect is described as heavyset, and a third wore a gray shirt and dark jeans. 

Investigators say the three men were involved in a deadly attack on a 22-year-old man on East 168th Street near Morris Avenue at 12:30 p.m. on June 29. The trio fled northbound on Morris Avenue in a white Infiniti sedan, police say.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.

The victim, Joshua Simpson, had just left a deli in the area when police say he suffered multiple stab wounds. It happened on his birthday.
