One Stabbed As Twins Clash Over PC

By Brian Magoolaghan


Fraternal twin brothers in Far Rockaway got into a heated argument last week over the use of the family computer – prompting one to stab the other in the kidney, police said.

The 14-year-old brothers, whose names are being withheld due to their juvenile status, started to battle in their family’s apartment on Caffrey Avenue shortly after noon last Thursday. Access to the family’s computer, police said, is what sparked the fury.

The fight left one brother laying on the front steps of the apartment building with a punctured right kidney. He was taken by EMS to Jamaica Hospital and was expected to undergo surgery.

Police recovered the knife at the scene and arrested the other brother for assault.
