Suffolk County Police have arrested a man in connection with a stabbing of two men that occurred on October 4 in Port Jefferson Station, New York.  

A man was walking on Jayne Boulevard at approximately 9 p.m. on October 4, when the driver of a passing Jeep slowed down and yelled at him. The man ran to a nearby friend’s house as the Jeep followed. The driver of the Jeep and a passenger exited the vehicle and attacked him. Two male occupants of the house heard the commotion and came to the man’s aide. During the altercation, the two men who came to his aid suffered stab wounds. The man being chased was not injured. The suspects fled in the Jeep. The victims were transported to Stony Brook University Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. One man was treated and released, and the other victim remains in the Intensive Care Unit following surgery.

After an investigation, Sixth Squad detectives charged Daniel Jusino, 20, of Centereach, with Assault 1st Degree and Assault 2nd Degree. He is being held overnight at the Sixth Precinct for arraignment this morning at First District Court in Central Islip. The investigation is continuing.

A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
