One under arrest in fatal Brooklyn stabbing
(VIN) A 41-year-old man is under arrest in last night’s fatal stabbing in Brooklyn that took the life of a 23-year-old Jewish man, thanks to quick work by detectives at the NYPD’s 63rd Precinct.
According to reports on ABC News (http://7ny.tv/2fFQm7e), eyewitness interviews helped police identify Jems John Paul as a person of interest in the dispute over a parking spot on E. 73d Street in Bergen Beach that took the life of Omari Dahan. Police placed a travel alert on Paul who was picked up at the airport by detectives as he tried to catch a Jet Blue flight to Haiti.
Paul was positively identified in a lineup and is expected to face charges in the incident. Police are continuing their investigation and hoping to locate the second man who took part in the fatal assault.
Police said that Dahan’s older brother came home to find his driveway blocked by another vehicle and started honking his horn repeatedly. When the driver of the car emerged from a nearby house, Dahan began screaming and things quickly turned ugly.
Eyewitness told CBS News (http://cbsloc.al/2hYlfEJ) that the older Dahan was extremely agitated and that after going into the house to ask his brother Omari for help, he returned with a child safety gate, hitting the driver of the parked car in the head with the gate.
As previously reported on VIN News (http://bit.ly/2fF7aLJ) a full scale fight emerged with one of the men pulling a knife. The two unidentified men fled the scene after stabbing Omari Dahan in the chest and slashing his brother in the arm.
