Two Busted In Stabbing
It was a Rockaway story that ended up with two people arrested and police scratching their heads.
The incident began at about 9:29 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
Police responded to a 911 call of a robbery in progress at 72-22 Almeda Avenue in Arverne.
What the responding officers found, however, was stranger than robbery.
They found Carlos Boyd, 32, of Brooklyn in an angry state and with a knife wound to his shoulder that required stitches to close.
They also found Stephanie Jordan, 29, of the Almeda Avenue address, just as angry and with a knife nearby.
Court papers, supplied by Queens District Attorney Richard Brown, show that Jordan had an order of protection against Boyd, her exboyfriend, that said he had to stay away from her home, her place of work and anywhere else she happened to be, even on the Internet.
When Boyd showed up at her apartment that day, he allegedly yelled at Jordan and threatened to kill her.
In response, the court documents say, she grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him.
Boyd was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court on November 24, charged with criminal contempt for violating the order of protection, falsely reporting an incident to the police and harassment in the second degree.
He was held on $2,500 bail for his next hearing, which is next week.
Jordan was arraigned the same day on charges of assault in the third degree and harassment in the second degree.
She was released on her own recognizance for her next hearing, which is also set for next week.
