Jose Peguero was Stabbed to Death by 3 Black Youths at Morris Heights Building, New York

September 20, 2013 New York City (WABC) – A 60-year-old Bronx man became the city’s 967th slaying victim of the year when he was stabbed to death by three robbers outside his Bronx apartment, police said yesterday. Jose Peguero was found injured on the sixth-floor hallway in the Morris Heights building on Grand Ave. where he had lived for 13 years. He was rushed to Lincoln Hospital, where he died at 12:16 a.

m. yesterday. Police say he had been stabbed in the chest and back. According to cops, three bandits knocked on Peguero’s door late Thursday night, armed with a 9-mm. pistol. Peguero must have suspected trouble because he was carrying a kitchen knife when he opened the door and began to fight with the men. Though two shots were fired, apparently no one was hit. “Somehow, they knew to look for money, but they didn’t expect that he would fight back,” a police source said. “In the course of the struggle, they took the knife and stabbed him,” the police source said. Two bullets, the gun and the murder weapon were recovered at the scene, police said. Cops summoned to the building spotted one fleeing suspect, who was finally cornered on a Cross Bronx Expressway ramp leading to the Major Deegan Expressway. Two other suspects including one resident of Peguero’s building were also arrested. Police did not release their names. Peguero, who worked as a chef at the New York Hilton, was described by neighbors as a kind man and hard worker who always managed to find time and money to buy ice cream for neighborhood kids on hot summer afternoons. “We’re shocked,” said one neighbor, Jose Cruz. “He was a happy man. When they played music out here, he danced.

” Co-workers at the New York Hilton, where Peguero had worked since 1984, said they were not surprised that he fought his attackers. “I’m sure he gave those guys who mugged him a hard time,” said Uwe Toedter, executive chef at the Hilton. “He was giving them a fight for their money.
