A Trio's Tryst Leads to Fatal Brooklyn Stabbing

A Trio's Tryst Leads to Fatal Brooklyn Stabbing

A man is in custody and another dead after a threesome in Brooklyn took a violent turn, police said Tuesday. "It's frightful. It's a nightmare".

Brooklyn resident Manos Ikonomidis was stabbed repeatedly after an unidentified woman told her boyfriend he raped her during a planned threesome encounter Monday evening.

"Although this is a little extreme, I'm not terribly surprised - there's some things going on there that we believe could lead to violence", said Stephen Christopher, referring to the neighbors who live in the building where the man was killed.

Police questioned Doherty but say they don't consider him a suspect in Ikonomidis' murder.

Meanwhile, the victim's girlfriend - who was not involved in the threesome - was photographed on scene by the Daily News grieving the loss. "Why didn't you listen to me?" she reportedly said.

Upon the 21 year old man who had been initially involved in the threesome returned to his Park Slope home, Manos made a decision to leave, for reasons that were not immediately clear.

Following criticisms of the Kensington and Chelsea Council's handling of the disaster, Paget-Brown said "lessons must be learned". The woman, 78-year-old Fatima Jafari , has not seen her husband, Ali Yawra , since Wednesday morning's tragedy.

Surveillance cameras captured two white men and a black man chasing Ikonomidis with baseball bats as he tried to leave the building, sources said.

The victim, unable to flee the building, knocked on an apartment door before he collapsed.

Witnesses said Ikonomidis was yelling that he had been stabbed with a knife and pounded in the head with a bat.

Investigators have not found any evidence to support that the sexual act was not consensual, police sources said.

Among the last words he said to Liguori were: "I'm so sorry".

"I was waiting for him to come home for dinner", said Ikonomidis' mother.

"I hope they are bringing charges against the girl that lied about being raped", wrote one person on the New York Daily News' Facebook page.

Ikonomidis pleaded with the woman not to call 911.

Ikonomidis' girlfriend arrived at the scene hours after her boyfriend had died. "My baby, it can't be f--ing real!" she cried, the Daily News reported. (Will) you guys get him please?.

"I'm in total shock. He was such a nice boy", said downstairs neighbor Maria Brancaleone.

"Beautiful boy - always tried to help you out when you needed it".
