Brooklyn teen Alfredo Allen in critical condition after being stabbed repeatedly in the head with a pair of scissors by emotionally disturbed Chevoy Nelson at Erasmus Hall High School after dispute over stolen basketball.
Brooklyn teen Alfredo Allen is in critical condition after he was stabbed repeatedly in the head with a pair of scissors by Chevoy Nelson, 16, at Erasmus Hall High School. According to the NY Daily News, students said the fight started because Chevoy Nelson was upset because Alfredo Allen stole the ball from him during a lunchtime pickup game. Are you kidding me?
Nelson – described by a school source as a special ed student who is emotionally disturbed – was arrested for assault with a weapon, the Education Department confirmed. The two teens were playing basketball in the third floor gym during lunch when Allen took the ball and wouldn’t give it to the increasingly angry Nelson. The furious teen punched Allen in the face then ran out to look for a weapon, witnesses said. Source
This is tough, but why did the school mainstream emotionally students with regular students? Particularly since Chevoy Nelson seems to have an anger management issue. This is a sad, sad turn of events. I pray Alfredo Allen will pull through. There has been so much tragedy in this holiday season. What a way to celebrate Christmas. Chevoy Nelson was arrested and charges against him are pending.
