Senior Stabbed By Girlfriend
A 66-year-old Rockaway Park man was stabbed by his younger girlfriend after an altercation at his Shore Front Parkway apartment, police sources say.
According to court records supplied by Queens District Attorney Richard Brown, Shatisha Walton, 30, also known as Shatisha Waletower, was with her boyfriend, Priefer Waldemar, inside his apartment at 7400 Shore Front Parkway in Rockaway Beach at about 9:29 a.m., when an argument broke out.
Court papers show that Walton grabbed a black-handled knife from the victim’s kitchen and stabbed him twice in the shoulder and hip.
Police were called by neighbors alerted by the noise coming from the apartment and Walton was arrested on the scene.
Waldemar was transported by city ambulance to Jamaica Hospital, where he received 12 stitches and was then released.
Walton was arraigned on March 10, charged with assault, menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon.
She was held on $5,000 bail for her next court appointment, which is scheduled for March 24.
