Car dealership employee stabs another to death in Bronx car dealership

An employee at a Bronx car dealership was fatally stabbed by his older fellow co-worker during a feud on Monday afternoon, police said.

The victim, Brandon Almonte, 22, of Yonkers, and his 53-year-old attacker started about 4:30 p.m. arguing inside Riverdale Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram on Broadway at Van Cortland Park South in Kingsbridge.

The older man repeatedly stabbed Almonte in the neck, mortally wounding him, cops said. Medics rushed him to New York Presbyterian Allen Pavilion Hospital, but he couldn’t be saved.

Holy Chirst, what a crazy world! one of Almonte’s friends yelled at the scene, hours later.

An NYPD spokesman couldn’t say Monday night why the pair argued.

A worker at nearby Manhattan College said the fight started in the dealership’s garage.

Two guys who worked there were fighting. The kid stumbles out of the garage, into the parking lot and then onto the sidewalk behind the dealership, where he falls, said the worker, who didn’t give his name. Almonte collapsed on nearby Corlear Ave.

When they put the kid on the stretcher they were pumping his chest trying to revive him, the Manhattan College worker said. He had severe injuries to his neck. It looked like he was dead.

Cops took the attacker into custody and recovered a knife, police said. He was hospitalized after complaining of chest pain, police said.

Charges against him are pending, and his name hasn’t been released.
