NEW YORK — A man who’s been cleared by a grand jury says he didn’t initially realize that he had stabbed one of four teens who jumped him at a New York City internet cafe.

Paul Kim tells the Daily News ( ) that he first learned during his court appearance that someone was fatally wounded during the April 26 attack in Flushing, Queens.

The grand jury declined to indict him after reviewing surveillance video and concluding Kim was defending himself.

Kim, who is homeless, was watching a bootleg of “The Fate of the Furious” when three teens tried to bully him into moving so they could sit together and play an online game.

They left and returned with the fourth teen and the violence turned deadly.
