A Brooklyn man was cuffed for stabbing a man to death in Greenwich Village last spring.
According to police, at 1:27 a.m. on May 13 officers from the 6th Precinct responded to a 911 call regarding a man stabbed at the intersection of West 4th Street and 6th Avenue. Upon their arrival, police found 28-year-old Brooklyn resident Samer Abdalla with multiple stab wounds to his torso.
Paramedics rushed Abdalla to NYC Health & Hospitals/Bellevue, where he was pronounced dead.
An investigation found that Abdalla was involved in a dispute with a group of men at the location prior to the stabbing. The group fled on foot before police arrived.
On Oct. 3, the NYPD announced that 25-year-old Brooklyn resident Damon Clemmons was arrested in connection to the stabbing. He was charged with murder and manslaughter.
