A large fight ended in the stabbing of a man on East Broadway last night. Late into the evening, police were still determining how it all began.
A man was stabbed aboard an F train at Essex Street late Saturday night, the Post reports. The incident happened around 4:20 a.m.
Police say there are two suspects. Officers boarded the train in Brooklyn, at Church Avenue, but did not find the men.
The victim was taken to New York Presbyterian Hospital, where he was treated for the stab wound and released. Police did not release his name.
There’s more violence to report this morning. A man was rushed to Bellevue Hospital after being stabbed. The incident happened around 6 a.m., at the LaGuardia public housing complex, 250 Clinton Street (near Cherry).
The victim is expected to survive. No suspect is in custody, but police are on the scene.
More to come…
From this morning’s New York Post Police Blotter:
In the story, “Stabbed Man Stuck on Roof,” the newspaper reported: “A Lower East Side man was stabbed in the chest and had to be lowered from a roof by cops and firemen… The victim… rushed up the stairwell covered with blood… When emergency workers arrived, he was on the roof of an adjacent building.”
A Lo-Down reader sent us these photos yesterday. We’re told the man was apparently distraught and the stab would was self-inflicted. Emergency crews had to lower the victim to the ground, as you see here, because the stairwell was too narrow to bring him down in the stretcher. The man is hospitalized in stable condition. It looks like he’ll make it through.
Given the circumstances of this story, we will not be publishing the man’s name. But a lot of people saw the ordeal and a lot more read about it, so we wanted to let you know more about what happened.
In a bit of non-hurricane news this morning, the New York Post is reporting that a neighborhood resident was stabbed in the chest yesterday, and had to be rescued from a roof on Henry Street, between Clinton and Montgomery. From the Post:
Tonight about 7:30 p.m., a male victim was stabbed near the intersection of Cherry and Rutgers streets. A NYPD spokesman says a man, in his mid-30′s, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital. He is expected to survive. No other information is being released this evening; an investigation is ongoing; no arrests have been made. DNA Info reported the victim is in stable condition.
Lower East Side rapper “Tru Life” has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for his role in the fatal stabbing of a man outside a Manhattan apartment complex almost two years ago. The former Jay-Z protege, who’s real name is Roberto Rosado, and his brother accepted a plea deal in connection with second-degree murder, gang assault and assault charges.
Prosecutors said 20-year old Christopher Guerrero was killed at the end of a violent evening in June of 2009. The trouble began hours earlier in a Midtown night club after alleged LES drug dealer Michael Slater was shot in the stomach.
The ordeal shook up residents of the housing developments along Avenues C and D, where escalating violence was considered then (and still is now) a growing concern.
Rosado’s brother, Marcus, was sentenced to 12 years. Under the terms of the deal, neither man can appeal.
