Juvenile New Rochelle stabbing subject appears in court

Police documents reveal the subject has a history with stabbings


WHITE PLAINS – A 15-year-old New Rochelle High School student who’s being charged with attempted murder for allegedly stabbing a classmate appeared in court Tuesday. He was arraigned on a slew of charges, including attempted murder, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon.

Police allege that the defendant stabbed another student inside New Rochelle High School on Jan. 18 this year. The suspect fled New York and led police on a four-month manhunt, which ended on May 14 when the FBI found him in Alabama at a relative's home.

The teenager stood next to his attorney and did not speak during his appearance as he stood before Westchester County Judge Anne Minihan.

"The people are recommending that you not be granted youthful offender adjudication, and they're recommending a sentence of one to three years in state prison, a final order of protection, and a surcharge. So that will give you something to think about and speak to your attorney about," Minihan said.

Police documents show that the suspect has a history of violence including another stabbing back in May 2016 when he was a student at Isaac E. Young Middle School.

The defendant is expected back in court on Aug. 21.

FiOS1 News is withholding the 15-year-old's name and not showing his face because he's being considered a juvenile offender.
