Five people were stabbed in incidents of violence last night in various parts of NYC, including posh neighborhoods like TriBeCa and Madison Av in Manhattan.
The list includes a fatal victim: Marvin Duchenne (29), attacked in the middle of an argument in the Norwood section, The Bronx.
Duchenne was fatally stabbed around 8 p.m. Friday while argued with a Hispanic man who stabbed him near Jerome Avenue and East Gun Hill Road, police said. He later died at the Jacobi Hospital.
Shortly before midnight, in Madison Avenue, a 19-year-old teenager was stabbed a few steps from the famous Plaza Hotel and luxurious designer shops, an area that has suffered a decline since the pandemic.
“You could see bloody clothes lying on the sidewalk in front of Tod’s designer handbag store ”, detailed New York Post. The victim was transferred in stable condition to the Presbyterian Hospital in New York.
At around 1:15 am, another man was injured, being stabbed in the back in the “Captain Tilly” park in Queens, the police reported.
In TriBeCa (Manhattan), an hour later, a 46-year-old man was seriously injured in a stabbing on Church and Reade streets, in front of the “Hungry Ghost” coffee shop.
The unidentified suspect, described as a 6-foot-tall white male with black hair and wearing a dark jacket, approached the victim around 2:30 a.m. and cut him in the arm and torso, said the police.
Neighbors were shocked by the attack. “It is awful. This is TriBeCa. You don’t normally have this kind of thing around here. It’s pretty scary. People don’t even close their doors in this neighborhood. . . It’s usually very, very safe, ”said an unidentified resident.
About 15 minutes later, in Chinatown, the police arrested Maximillian Ong (38) on suspicion of having stabbed a 20-year-old boy three times, leaving a pool of blood on the pavement.
