Stabbings Mar Labor Day Weekend

By Brian Magoolaghan

  • The vicious bloodshed at The Beautiful Palm Garden Pub was just one of four unrelated stabbing incidents that bloodied the peninsula’s west end throughout Labor Day weekend.
  • A Brooklyn teenager was arrested in Breezy Point Saturday night for stabbing another teen twice in the buttocks after an argument, police said. Kevin Scott, 16, is charged with assault, weapons and harassment charges for allegedly stabbing Matt Irwin, 19, at the Surf Club on Rockaway Point Boulevard, according to a spokeswoman for Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown.

    Police apprehended Scott at the scene and recovered a switchblade, five bags of cocaine and a bag of marijuana, sources said. Irwin received stitches at Peninsula Hospital Center and was later released. His alleged attacker, Scott, faces up to 1 year in prison or a $1,000 fine, according to Brown’s spokeswoman.

    Beach 96 Street was the scene of another dispute and stabbing on Labor Day, police said. In that incident, John Ujlaky, 34, was stabbed once in his left side after he argued with Gregory Hernandez, 28.

    Police apprehended Hernandez, of 167 Beach 96 Street, at the Beach 98 Street subway platform, sources said. He is charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the district attorney’s spokeswoman. Queens Criminal Court Judge Mary O’Donoghue set bail at $10,000. Hernandez is due back in court on September 20.

    Yet another stabbing took place early Tuesday morning on Beach 92 Street when an all-night fight between teenage relatives – over who got to sleep in the bed – ended when one stabbed the other in the inner thigh with a steak knife, according to law enforcement sources.

    Lloyd DeFlorimonte, 18, is accused of stabbing his 15-year-old cousin inside 92-06 Holland Avenue. He is charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment, according to the district attorney’s spokeswoman. Queens Criminal Court Judge Robert Raciti set bail at $3,000 bail and $1,000 cash. DeFlorimonte is due back in court on September 20.
