Someone stabbed a Greenpoint man to death on Monday night in the vestibule of the townhouse where he lived, cops said.
The killing was the neighborhood’s first murder of the year, according to NYPD data.
Police responded at 8:37 pm to a 911 call reporting an assault at the address on Dupont Street between Manhattan Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard. On arriving, they found 37-year-old Zbigniew Truszkowski bleeding profusely from stab wounds, according to a report.
Emergency medical personnel transported Truszkowski to Bellevue Hospital Center in Manhattan, police said. A doctor there pronounced him dead on arrival, per the authorities.
A pair of NYPD detectives inspected the front of the house just a few feet from a large bloodstain on the sidewalk on Tuesday morning. A PT Cruiser with two smashed windows sat at the curb, inside crime-scene tape.
Neighbors said they were surprised that a murder like this had happened in such a quiet part of Greenpoint.
“It is usually really nice around here,” said Andrew Rodriguez.
Officers say they believe a man Truszkowski was arguing with did the deed.
No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
Murders steadily declined in Greenpoint from 1990, when the neighborhood suffered eight, until 2013, when there was one, data show.
