Sometimes people just don’t get along. It happens. It doesn’t have to lead to violence, but unfortunately, it often does. And this even happens in the landscaping community. It did in Long Island, New York where one landscaper stabbed another.
The one landscaper stabbed the other landscaper working outside a Holtsville, Long Island 7-Eleven but was injured himself when the victim landscaper actually used his weed trimmer to fend off the attack, said Suffolk police.
The victim was cutting grass at the convenience store on when landscaper Jorge Sandoval, who had a grudge against him, came out of his vehicle and stabbed him, police said.
The victim used his weed trimmer, which cut Sandoval’s arm. Sandoval got back into his vehicle, and when he and the driver tried to take off, the stabbing victim’s co-worker jumped in front of the vehicle to try to stop them from leaving.
The getaway vehicle was going slowly and didn’t stop until a highway patrol officer arrived, authorities said. Sandoval was taken to Long Island Community Hospital in East Patchogue with non-life-threatening injuries.
Was He Charged
Sixth Precinct detectives booked him on a second-degree assault charge. He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday. Other details, including the nature of the grudge and where Sandoval’s vehicle was stopped, were not immediately available.
