A 52-year-old Brooklyn man was murdered with a kitchen knife as he attempted to break up a fight between two women. Felix Figueroa was stabbed in the chest on the corner of Barbey and Pitkin Avenue in Cypress Hills in front of a store where the fight broke out. As the two women fought and Figueroa got in the middle, a relative of one of the women stabbed Figueroa. "By the time I went to separate them, he kicked the guy, got up, and showed me he'd been stabbed," a lifelong friend of the victim told the Daily News.

47-year-old Neil Ali has been apprehended and charged with murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon. "He always had people's backs," Figueroa's 18-year-old daughter told the paper. "He was a good father."
