TRAGEDY IN BROOKLYN: Orthodox Jewish Man Murdered By Neighbor Who Blocked Victims Driveway
Police arrested the man they say is behind the deadly stabbing of an Orthodox Jewish man in Brooklyn, all over a parking space.

Djem Jean-Paul, 41, was caught at JFK Airport trying to escape to Haiti, according to the NYPD. He has been charged with manslaughter, assault 2nd, and criminal possession of a weapon 4th.

As YWN reported earlier, Omari Dahan ZL, 23, was stabbed in the chest at 11:30PM Sunday night, and was RL pronounced dead at Beth Israel Hospital. The (unnamed) brother, 29, was stabbed in the arm and was in stable condition.

Police say Djem Jean-Paul had blocked their driveway, and after the brothers had honked their car horn for some time, Jean-Paul walked out of his ex-wifes home, and attacked the brothers.

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 todays stabbing victim were both killed in a terrible accident at a waste transfer station in Queens. Shlomo Dahan ZL, 49, had died in a desperate attempt to rescue his 23-year-old son Harel ZL 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.

The Levaya was held on Monday afternoon at 3:00PM. He is being flown to Eretz Yisroel for the Kevura.
