Last week, a Queens teenager was stabbed to death as a gang of other teens attempted to rob him of his iPhone. Police have now arrested 17-year-old Stephon Huffman for the botched robbery and murder of Patrick Dixon.
Police say Dixon, 17, was exiting a bus with a friend around 11 a.m. on 142nd Street around Foch Boulevard last Friday, when five teens approached them and attempted to take Dixon's iPhone. When Dixon fought back, Huffman allegedly sliced his neck; the crew then panicked when they saw the blood, and fled the scene.
Huffman was identified by witnesses from a photo array, and is charged with murder, robbery tampering with evidence and criminal possession of a weapon. According to what appears to be Stephon Huffman's MySpace, Huffman hails from the "CITY OF YANKEE HATZ."
