A Roosevelt man was arrested July 16 after police say he stabbed his girlfriend in the neck during an argument.
Police say 37-year-old Tremaine Ashley was in his basement apartment with his 34-year-old girlfriend at about 6:55 p.m., when they began fighting and Ashley plunged a kitchen knife into the woman’s neck and then stabbed her multiple times in the chest.
The victim’s brother had observed Ashley fleeing the scene, according to police, then noticed the victim was unconscious and called police.
Shortly after, Hempstead police responded to an auto accident in which Ashley’s auto struck a 2004 Dodge Caravan with five occupants on Baldwin Road near Botsford Street in Hempstead.
