NYC stabbing turns into homicide after victim suffers heart attack: cops

A Bronx stabbing victim who suffered a heart attack during February’s harrowing heist has now died – with the case now upgraded to a homicide, police say.

Edgar Acevedo, 47, suffered a cardiac arrest after he and his 39-year-old friend were confronted by two crooks at East Kingsbridge Road and the Grand Concourse shortly before 2 a.m. on February 18.

Police said the thieves – who remain at large – stole the two men’s wallets with about $110.

Acevedo suffered a heart attack during the assault and collapsed while reporting the theft to police. He was then rushed to the intensive care unit at Montefiore Hospital Medical Center.

On May 5, he had “a medical episode” and died – although it is unclear whether he was still hospitalized at that time.

Regardless, the city medical examiner’s office has since ruled his death a homicide.

Police released surveillance video Wednesday of the two suspects still at large and asked anyone with information on their whereabouts to contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS or crimestoppers.nypdonline.org.

Both suspects are described as heavy-built men.
