At Least 5 Men Arrested In Connection To Senseless Stabbing Of NY Teen -blogged by @theRealAlexisDanielle ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At least 5 suspects are in custody in connection to the brutal murder of a 15-year-old Bronx teen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sunday evening, after receiving a tip police made multiple arrests in both Paterson, New Jersey and the Bronx, New York. According to reports, another suspect was previously arrested in the Dominican Republic and at least two others were arrested in connection with the case. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The men are accused of attacking 15-year-old Lesandro, after dragging him out of a Bronx bodega. The men were seen on camera stabbing the teen multiple times before running off. Lesandro managed to get up and seek help, but once no one stopped to help, he ran to a nearby hospital where he fell dead. The entire incident was filmed on camera. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lesandro’s Mother, who says her son only left their apartment to lend $5 to someone, spoke to CBS2 about the news of the arrests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Thank God they were caught,” Leandra Feliz, told CBS2. “It’s good because they have to pay but I want my son back. If they could give me the life of my son I’d be happy.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A local gang leader allegedly took to Facebook after the stabbing to send his apologies for the senseless murder, stating that it was a case of mistaken identity.
