Police have arrested a suspect in the murder of a 40-year-old homeless man who was found fatally stabbed in Cambria Heights, authorities announced late Friday.
Andre Perrin, 48, has been charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon in the death of Dshawn Rogers, cops said.
Officers discovered Rogers on 230th Street outside a home near 116th Avenue at about 4:20 p.m. on Thursday, authorities said. He was unconscious and had been stabbed in the torso.
Rogers was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Cops believe a dispute between Rogers and Perrin, who lives a couple of blocks from the crime scene, led to the stabbing. The relationship between the two was not immediately clear.
