Arrest made in stabbing on Sedgwick Avenue in Kingsbridge


A 16-year-old boy has been arrested and charged with attempted murder following a stabbing of a 32-year-old man that occurred earlier this month, police said. 

The attack took place after the teen and man arranged to meet each other through an app.

The two met at the man’s apartment on Sedgwick Avenue and West Kingsbridge Road on Aug. 1 around 2:30 p.m., when at some point the teenager reportedly stabbed the man in the neck with a “cutting instrument.”

The boy ran away and the man was transported to St. Barnabas Hospital by EMS. According to police, the man was in critical, but stable condition, suffering a severe laceration.

Just about a week later, police from the 50th Precinct arrested the alleged stabber.
