Cardi B Donates $8,000 to Family of 15-Year-Old Fatally Stabbed in the Bronx
The murder was captured on surveillance footage.
Rapper Cardi B has donated $8,000 to the family of a 15-year-old boy who was brutally slain in New York City in an attack captured on video.
Five men repeatedly stabbed Lesandro (Junior) Guzman-Feliz with machetes and knives on Wednesday night in the Bronx. Horrid video of the incident shows the attack and then Lesandro trying to run to the hospital, which was just a few blocks away.
He collapsed and died before he could make it.
Cardi B, who is from the Bronx, posted about the brutal slaying with the hashtag #justiceforjunior.
"These Bronx streets are ruthless," the 25-year-old rapper said on Instagram.
The rapper donated to the family’s GoFundMe for Lesandro’s funeral expenses, which has raised more than $100,000 so far.
Lesandro was attacked by a group of five men who were in a local gang, according to CBS New York.
"The stabbing murder of this young man is among the most brutal crimes I’ve seen in my 36yr career,” NYPD Chief Terence Monahan tweeted.
Multiple reports claimed the men mistook the teen for someone else.
Police took two suspects into custody in the Bronx and tracked down three more in Paterson, N.J., police announced Sunday.
