BORO PARK – Stabbing seems like the way to go in Brooklyn, as another one took place over the weekend.
On Sunday, October 27 at around 10 p.m., a 22-year-old man was standing on the corner of 18th and McDonald Avenues when another man approached him and stabbed him with a knife. This caused lacerations to his face and hand.
The victim was taken to Maimonides Hospital and is in stable condition. The suspect walked away and headed toward an unknown direction. No arrests have been made at this time and the investigation is ongoing.
Just a few days before this incident, on October 23, an artist, 48-year-old Jean Jocelyn Lareus, was stabbed to death steps away from his apartment on East 19th Street near Cortelyou Road. On September 27, one man stabbed another near Hegeman Avenue and Melford Street. Also on that same day, a group of individuals got into a dispute with some employees from the EZ Laundromat, located at 530 Fourth Avenue. As a result of the dispute, a 19-year-old man was stabbed several times in the torso. A week before that, on September 20, a 26-year-old man from Canarsie was arrested in connection to a stabbing that killed a man inside a Williamsburg bodega– all of these, which we highlighted in our crime blotter.
