Young Brooklyn man arrested for New Year's stabbing


An 18-year-old Brooklyn man, Reyesun Watson, allegedly stabbed a 26-year-old Valley Stream man in the abdomen with a knife Jan. 1, Nassau County police said.

The victim was at his Melrose home when the two argued, leading to the stabbing, 5th Precinct detectives said. Reyesun was soon arrested and charged with second-degree assault, third-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession. He was arraigned in First District Court in Hempstead Jan 2.

Watson’s attorney could not be reached for comment at press time.
