The Jewish Voice - - NEW YORK - By: Max Rozwaski

A23-year-old Jewish man was fa­tally stabbed by his neigh­bor late Sun­day night, ac­cord­ing to a Yeshiva World News re­port Mon­day. The vic­tim, Omri Da­han, was stabbed in the chest at around 11:30 PM, while his older brother, 29-year-old Ayal Da­han, was stabbed in the arm. The older Da­han was re­ported by doc­tors to be in sta­ble con­di­tion fol­low­ing his hos­pi­tal­iza­tion af­ter the at­tack. Omri Da­han suc­cumbed to his wounds at Beth Is­rael Hos­pi­tal at around 12:30 AM, ac­cord­ing to NY Daily News.

Both YWN and NY Daily News cited re­ports that the at­tacker blocked the brothers’ drive­way, re­fus­ing to move his car de­spite Ayal Da­han re­peat­edly honk­ing his horn. An ag­gres­sive al­ter­ca­tion en­sued which cul­mi­nated in the sus­pect fa­tally stab­bing Omri Da­han with a knife, and at­tack­ing Ayal Da­han as well. Fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent, the sus­pect fled in a gray Volk­swa­gen Jetta, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

“What hap­pened was, the Jewish (man) came home, the Haitian guy's car was dou­ble-parked in front of his drive­way,” a 28-year-old eye­wit­ness told the NY Daily News Mon­day.

“The guy was beep­ing for 10 min­utes straight and they were ig­nor­ing him,” the wit­ness, Ricky Zawaki, said. “As soon as the guy came down to move the car, the Jewish kid got out of the car and started yelling at the man, say­ing, ‘Move your eff­ing car.’ Zawaki said Ayal Da­han emerged from his home with a child gate, which he used to strike Jean-Paul in the head.

The deadly stab­bing rep­re­sents yet an­other tragedy for the Da­han fam­ily, who lost their father, Shlomo Da­han, and son, Harel Da­han, in 2009, when the father and son fell into a toxic well they were at­tempt­ing to vac­uum at Ja­maica’s Re­gal Re­cy­cling Com­pany.

The sus­pect be­hind the stab­bing, 41-year-old Djems JeanPaul, was ar­rested by NYPD homi­cide de­tec­tives while at­tempt­ing to flee to his na­tive Haiti, ac­cord­ing to a NY Daily News re­port. Jean-Paul, who has no prior ar­rests, is fac­ing man­slaugh­ter charges, along with as­sault and il­le­gal weapons pos­ses­sion.
