New Rochelle Man Killed in Mount Vernon

A New Rochelle man was found fatally stabbed inside of a Mount Vernon business.

Shortly before 11 pm, on Friday, July 22, 2022, Mount Vernon Police were called to New Line Taxi, 72 East Third Street, for a report of a man stabbed. Initially, Mount Vernon Fire Department and Empress Ambulance were dispatched to the location for an unresponsive party. Upon their arrival it was determined that the unresponsive man was the victim of a crime and requested Mount Vernon Police respond. First responders initially believed the man was the victim of a gunshot wound to the chest, it was later determined that the man had actually been stabbed. The victim was rushed to Montefiore Mount Vernon Hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Through investigation it appears that the victim had been involved in an altercation with another person in the rear of the taxi stand and that this altercation turned physical and ultimately fatal. Mount Vernon Police Detectives are being assisted by the FBI Westchester Safe Streets Task Force, Detectives from the Westchester County Police Department, Detective Division, and Westchester County Police Real Time Crime Center.
