Fight leads to slashed stomach: Complaint

JAMAICA — A Jamaica man allegedly slashed another man in the stomach following a dispute on a Jamaica street, according to a criminal complaint.

Thomas Benn, 68, of 166-18 120th Ave. in Jamaica, allegedly got into a verbal dispute with another man around 6:57 p.m. May 16 in front of 120-09 167th St. and slashed the victim in the stomach with a knife, the complaint said.
