Police said on Thursday that a parolee who had been released from prison in the Bronx less than a year ago was stabbed to death in front of his building. The parolee was 41 years old.
At around 7:20 p.m., following a conflict with the person who would later murder him, Perlon Felder was stabbed in the neck. His residence was located in the River Park Towers complex in Richman Plaza in the neighborhood of Morris Heights. Wednesday, police said.
Emergency workers took Felder to St. Barnabas Hospital, but it was too late to save him.
A knife was found at the site, but the perpetrator of the crime has not been identified.
After spending more than seven years in prison for a conviction in Manhattan for robbery, possession of a weapon, and attempted assault, Felder was finally granted release in October of last year. According to the papers, he was also let out of prison in 2004 after serving four years for a Bronx cocaine conviction.
