Stabbed to death

A man was stabbed multiple times during a confrontation on Parade Place and Crooke Avenue last week — just paces away from the Prospect Park Parade Ground.

Cops from the 70th Precinct said that they were called to the corner just before 5:30 p.m. on April 2, where they found 18-year-old Rolandalonzo Castro suffering from bruises and stab wounds. It’s believed that he was struck with a baseball bat and stabbed with a machete.

Witnesses said that he was walking with his girlfriend through the Parade Grounds when he was attacked, possibly by other gang members. Castro, who was allegedly a member of the Dominicans Don’t Play gang, was fatally wounded after being chased out of the Parade Ground, possibly by members of a rival gang.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to call the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
