NYPD Seeks Suspect in Fatal Bronx Stabbing
‘A Bloody Mess’- Witness Says
By David Greene
Police have released a surveillance photo of a suspect wanted for questioning in connection with the grisly slashing death of a man inside a building’s stairwell in the Olinville section.
According to the NYPD, officers from the 47th Precinct responded to a 911 call of “a male assaulted,” inside of 3677 White Plains Road, at 2:20 p.m., on Sunday, June 30.
A police source stated that officers discovered a 30-year-old male victim, “Lying on the floor, inside the 4th floor stairwell, unconscious and unresponsive with trauma to his neck.”
The still-unidentified victim had been slashed twice on the neck and was declared dead at the scene.
One fourth-floor resident who declined to be identified, recalled, “It’s upsetting, because it’s literally a few feet from my apartment door, so it’s very frightening.”
The resident continued, “We didn’t open the door until we heard the radios and I knew we were safe…” She recalled what she saw, adding, “the door is ajar because the legs are keeping it open.”
Asked if the victim was a resident, the worker replied, “We’re still trying to figure out who he is.”
The following day police released a surveillance photo of an individual they seek to question, regarding the death.
Police have not yet identified the victim, pending notification of next of kin.
The suspect appears to be a muscular dark-skinned-male, wearing a tank-top with flowers on it, as well as the number “99.” The suspect has dread-locks and was wearing dark pants with a white belt.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS, all calls remain confidential.
