Homeless man charged with stabbing in midtown NYC: police officers

A homeless man was arrested Tuesday in connection with the fatal stabbing of a Queens man who died on the sidewalk just blocks from Times Square, police officers said.

Vincent Cole, 38, was charged with murder Monday, less than a day after 51-year-old Esan Benn was found unconscious near West 38th Street and Seventh Avenue in midtown Manhattan, police said.

Benn was taken to the hospital around 5:30 a.m. Monday but could not be rescued, according to police.

According to Guyanese news site The News Room, Benn was a tennis coach in his native Guyana.

Medical officials later found Benn’s stab wounds and his death was ruled a homicide.

Police investigators eventually found video showing the Queens man in an argument before he was stabbed and stumbled over a block where police discovered him, police sources said at the time.

The man was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital but he did not survive.
