Some sad news comes out of New York today as 20-year-old Malcolm Jacob was fatally stabbed in the Bronx by his mother’s boyfriend on Tuesday night over a pair of sneakers.
Malcolm Jacob was fatally stabbed in the chest after accusing his mom’s sweetheart of stealing his shoes in her apartment on Merriam Ave. near W. 170th St. in Highbridge around 10:10 p.m., the sources said.
Cops say Jacob’s mom watched in horror as her beau plunged a knife into her son’s chest once before he fled the scene.
Paramedics rushed Jacob to Lincoln Medical Center but he could not be saved.
The suspect remained at large early Wednesday.
Every time we read about violence or something negative happening in the community due to sneakers it’s depressing stuff. Shoes are meant to bring us together and for people to die over something as small as a pair of sneakers is just plain stupid. Our prayers go out to Malcolm Jacob’s family and loved ones.
