A 32-year-old man was fatally stabbed on Roosevelt Avenue during the early hours Saturday morning, according to police.

The victim was stabbed multiple times in the head—and his 32-year-old girlfriend was stabbed in the arm—at the corner of 98th Street and Roosevelt Avenue at around 3:15 a.m., cops said.

Both were transported by EMS to NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst where the man was pronounced dead and the woman listed in stable condition.

Police said that a dispute occurred at a nearby catering hall between the man killed and a 20-year-old male. According to the NY Daily News, an argument broke out after the 20-year-old tried to cut in while the pair were dancing. The incident sparked a brawl outside.

During the fight, the younger man pulled out a knife and stabbed the older man several times in the head. The victim’s girlfriend tried to intervene and was slashed in the arm, cops said.

The 20-year-old has been taken into custody and charges are pending. The name of the man killed has yet to be released, pending family notification.

Anything you want over here on a Friday night. I met an AOC impersonator the last friday night. There’s also some great food. Great bars. I will never leave this area.

Was this 20 year old thinking about the consequences of this stupid act. Its 25 years to life. A better choice would have been punching the older man once causing a minor injury. This would have resulted in NO jail time. Another piece of stupid trash off the streets.
