Detectives on Staten Island are questioning a person of interest connected to a deadly stabbing at a home on Sunday night.
Police said the homicide happened at around 10:44 p.m. on July 23 at a residence on Union Avenue just south of Richmond Terrace in Mariners Harbor.
Officers from the 121st Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about an assault in progress, found the victim, a 38-year-old man, stabbed multiple times about his body.
As of Monday morning, police sources did not provide a possible motive for the attack, or the connection between the victim and the person of interest.
EMS rushed the wounded man to Richmond University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police have not yet released his identity, pending family notification.
The person of interest, a 58-year-old man, was apprehended at the scene and brought in for questioning. Charges against him are pending the results of the ongoing investigation.
This was the second reported homicide in the 121st Precinct this year; the command tallied none in all of 2022, according to CompStat figures through July 16. Felony assaults, however, are down 5.2% year-to-date.
