Police Arrest Brooklyn Man In Fatal September Stabbing Of Teen Girl

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Police have now charged a man in the brutal Brooklyn stabbing of a teen back in September.

Rashad Salaam, 22, was been charged with second-degree murder on Wednesday, in the killing of 16-year-old Kyanna Thomas. She had been stabbed in the neck the morning of September 25.

1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck Reports On The Arrest

Sources told 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck that Thomas met Salaam on the Internet. After being stabbed at 3 a.m. on a street corner, Kyanna did manage to dial 911 before she passed away.

Kyanna had been spending the weekend at her aunt’s home in Brooklyn. She often did that despite residing in Rosedale, Queens.

Salaam lived on Macdougal Street — not far from the murder scene.

Neighbors say they are relieved that an arrest has been made.

    Winnipeg Jets uniforms finally released in NHL 12, but the home jerseys have navy blue between the shades of light blue on the tail. Should be white and NOT navy. Another fail by EA developers.
    Road jerseys done properly, although the outerlining circle of the main crest (on both jerseys) appears to a shade of blue lighter than what should be of the navy everywhere else in the jerseys).. Hope they correct that as well in NHL 13.

    For anyone that want to see the Jets new jerseys for real, they will be playing the Islanders tomorrow night at Nassau Coliseum. 7pm faceoff. And It would be pretty safe to say that great tickets are still available and at a great price.
