A family already shattered by previous tragedy is sadly mourning once again.
A 23-year-old Frum man was R”L stabbed to death by his neighbor after he had blocked the victims driveway, Sunday night / early Monday morning.
Sources tell YWN that two Orthodox Jewish brothers were stabbed outside their home located at 1261 East 73 Street in the Bergen-Beach section of Brooklyn.
Omari Dahan Z”L, 23, was stabbed in the chest at 11:30PM Sunday night, and was R”L pronounced dead at Beth Israel Hospital. The (unnamed) brother, 29, was stabbed in the arm and was in stable condition.
Police say the attacker had blocked their driveway, and after the brothers had honked their car horn for some time, the man walked out of his ex-wife’s home and attacked them. Following a brief altercation, the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed both brothers.
Police said the attacker fled the scene in a gray Volkswagen Jetta. No arrests have been made.
Volunteers from the Misaskim organization have been on the scene for hours, and have volunteers placed at the hospital as well – working closely with the NYPD as well as the NYC Medical Examiner to ensure proper Kavod Hames.
In a sad twist to this story, YWN previously reported in 2009 that the father and brother of today’s stabbing victim were both killed in a terrible accident at a waste transfer station in Queens.
Shlomo Dahan Z”L, 49, had died in a desperate attempt to rescue his 23-year-old son Harel Z”L from the deadly fumes of an 18-foot-deep cesspool at a Queens sewage plant where they were working.
A third man, Rene Francisco Rivas, was killed when he went after the elder Dahan.
Levaya information will be published when it becomes available.
