An elderly grandfather killed his granddaughter’s boyfriend when the couple got into a fight in his Bushwick home, police said.
Nicholas Diaz, 81, allegedly stabbed 21-year-old Kevin Rivera in the chest at the elderly man’s home on Broadway between Van Buren and Greene streets at 2:17 am on Sunday morning.
Police said the younger man was fighting with his girlfriend when Diaz intervened and stabbed Rivera with a knife. The girlfriend called emergency personnel, who took Rivera to Woodhull Medical Center, where doctors pronounced him dead.
Police charged Diaz with manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon. He has not yet been arraigned and a judge has not set bail in the case. It was not immediately clear if he has a lawyer yet.
