A man was fatally stabbed in front of his wife by a 19-year-old in an unprovoked attack in New York City, according to police.
The attack occurred at 1:15 p.m. on Thursday at East 205 Street and Decatur Avenue in Norwood, in the Bronx. Nathaniel Rivers, 35, was sitting in a parked car with his wife when Franklin Mesa, 19, allegedly approached the two.
Rivers and Mesa briefly exchanged words before, out of nowhere, the 19-year-old reached into the vehicle and allegedly stabbed the man in the torso. The victim’s wife grabbed a prybar, exited the vehicle, and started hitting Mesa, but he ran off.
Rivers was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital but did not survive his injuries…
