Three accused of stabbing neighbor

Arrest warrants have been issued for three Glen Park residents accusing of beating and stabbing their neighbor at his home.

Cornell L. Fletcher, 30, Roncia L. Fletcher, 34, and Tosheba Lewis, 33, are charged with four felony counts each, including attempted robbery resulting in serious bodily injury and attempted aggravated battery.

The victim told Sgt. Dan Callahan recognized “Ronnie” and “Tasha” who came to his home in the 5100 block of Madison Street Oct. 17.

After he let them and a man into his house, they accused him of breaking a truck window and attacked.

Lewis struck him with a baseball bat in the head, ribs and arm while Cornell Fletcher held him down, the probable cause affidavit states.

“Ronnie yelled to keep hitting him,” the affidavit states.

The attackers looked in his pockets for money, then left.

The victim needed nine stitches on his head and treatment for a stab wound and collapsed lung.

The Fletchers will be held on $50,000 bail when arrested; Lewis will be held without bail. She has a prior conviction for a 2009 battery.

Neighbor helps cops catch burglar

An observant neighbor called police when she saw suspicious activity across the street, leading to the arrest of burglary suspect Jeremy Roy.

Roy, 22, of 2052 Hanley St., is charged with burglary and residential entry. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

On Aug. 15, a neighbor in the 500 block of East 52nd Avenue saw a silver car parked in front of her neighbor’s house and saw one person in the back and another standing near the front.

She saw the homeowner’s grandson run out the door and called police.

The boy fled because someone climbed in a bedroom window, the probable cause affidavit states.

As Cpl. Daniel Quasney towed the silver car, Roy returned and questioned police about why his car was seized.

The neighbor identified Roy as one of the men she saw at the door.
