From this morning’s New York Post Police Blotter:
A knife-wielding hood stabbed a man during a botched robbery in Chinatown yesterday. The 24-year-old victim was on Forsyth Street near Delancey Street at 1:20 a.m. when the punk tried to swipe his iPod. The victim fought back, only to be stabbed by the thug, who ran off. The victim was treated and released from Bellevue Hospital.
Yesterday we noted a brief item in the Post about an incident that occurred on Henry Street (near Clinton) Saturday morning.
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.

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.
