Defendant Barricaded Himself, Teen and Son When Police Arrived

 Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark today announced that a Bronx man has been indicted for stabbing his six-year-old son and for assaulting a 16-year-old girl, and for keeping them hostage in his apartment. 

 District Attorney Clark said, “The defendant allegedly punched a teen girl and stabbed his own defenseless son, who is quadriplegic. The defendant also allegedly refused to let the victim and child leave his apartment when police arrived. Thankfully the boy survived but required surgery and is still hospitalized.” 

 District Attorney Clark said the defendant, Tyree Scott, 29, of 944 Rogers Place, was arraigned today on Attempted Murder in the second degree, first-degree Assault, three counts of second-degree Assault, fourth-degree Criminal Possession of a Weapon, second-degree Unlawful Imprisonment, third-degree Assault and two-counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child before Bronx Supreme Court Justice Efrain Alvarado. Bail was set at $500,000 cash/bond and the defendant is due back in court on May 17, 2021.

 According to the investigation, at about 5:00 p.m. on February 1, 2021, the defendant was allegedly smoking marijuana and drinking with a 16-year-old girl in his apartment and refused to let her leave for the night. The next day, when the victim woke up, the defendant again refused to let her leave. Scott allegedly punched the teen multiple times in the head and the victim called 911. When police officers arrived, Scott allegedly refused to let them in and barricaded himself with the teen and his son. The defendant then allegedly stabbed his son multiple times with a screwdriver, piercing his heart. Cops were able to break into the apartment and placed him under arrest. The child was taken to Harlem Hospital in critical condition. He underwent surgery to repair the penetration of his heart and also received infusions.

 District Attorney Clark also thanked NYPD Detective Alyssa Petrucelli of the 41st Precinct and NYPD Detective Collin Higgins of Bronx Homicide.

 An indictment is an accusatory instrument and not proof of a defendant’s guilt.
