Police: Man stabbed to death in Claremont in city's first homicide of the year
The first homicide of the year happened in Claremont a few hours into the new year.
Officials say the victim was stabbed to death early Sunday morning in front of 1335 College Ave.
Police say they received a call from the Bronx Care Health System emergency room around 4 a.m. and when they arrived found two people with stab wounds - 63-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman.
Neighbors say the woman injured is the victim's girlfriend and he was visiting her when a group of people approached them and a dispute began.
