Kidd Creole of the legendary Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five has been charged with murder after he fatally stabbed a homeless man on Tuesday night.
According to police, Creole, whose real name is Nathaniel Glover, got into a heated altercation that turned deadly because he thought the homeless man was trying to hit on him.
Via The New York Times:
The police said that Nathaniel Glover, 57, known as Kidd Creole in the rap group, got into an argument around 11:50 p.m. on Tuesday with a 55-year-old man in Midtown Manhattan and then repeatedly stabbed him in the torso. The man was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Detectives in the New York Police Department spotted Mr. Glover on surveillance cameras near the scene and arrested him on Wednesday night. Mr. Glover, who lives in the Bronx, was charged with second-degree murder, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.
It is unclear how Mr. Glover knew the man, whose name was not made public. The man lived in a homeless shelter in Lower Manhattan, about two miles from where he was stabbed near the intersection of East 44th Street and Third Avenue, the police said.
Such a terrible situation.
