BRONX NEWS: Knife-wielding teen threatens 4 teens in separate Bronx muggings


A blade-wielding teenager stuck up four teens in a string of morning muggings in the Bronx, police said Sunday.


The robber worked a three-block area in Fordham Heights, first approaching a 15-year-old boy near Valentine Ave. and E. 192nd St. around 7:40 a.m. Tuesday, according to authorities. He displayed a knife and demanded the boy’s head phones.


The victim handed over his headphones and the mugger ran off.


The thief returned the following morning, setting his sights on two 14-year-old boys at Grand Concourse and E. 192nd St. in separate muggings less than an hour apart, cops said.

He threatened to stab the first victim at 7:15 a.m. and ran off empty-handed, according to police, then struck again 40 minutes later, allegedly sticking up the second victim and demanding his money.


The boy handed over and the creep bolted.


His rash of robberies ended two days later, when he snuck up on a 14-year-old girl and held a blade to her back in St. James Park around 7:20 a.m., according to authorities.


He snatched the girl’s iPhone 6 and zipped off on a bicycle, officials said.

Police on Sunday released surveillance images of the suspect and are asking for the public’s help identifying the menace. He is described as black, 16 to 18, 5-foot-8 and 130 to 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweater, dark-colored jeans and blue sneakers.


Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls are confidential.

BRONX NEWS: Man cuffed in stabbing slay of family pal amid clash in the Bronx


Police have arrested a Bronx man they say fatally stabbed a family friend during a fight in the Bronx, authorities said Saturday.


Wander Rosario, 21, surrendered to authorities a few hours after he allegedly killed 20-year-old Andi Tejada.


Rosario was arguing with Tejada inside the suspect’s apartment on Morris Ave. in Fordham when he grabbed a knife and repeatedly stabbed his victim about 4:15 p.m. Friday, according to cops. He ran off after the killing.


Other people in the apartment said Rosario knew Tejada’s family. The two were alone in a back room, so they didn’t know what the men were arguing about.

One man stabbed to death, another killed by gunfire


Medics rushed Tejada to St. Barnabas Hospital but he could not be saved.


After a friend talked Rosario into surrendering, Rosario was charged with murder, cops said.


He refused to say anything about the killing and demanded a lawyer, police sources said.


His arraignment was pending Saturday.

Student fatally stabbed at Bronx school laid to rest


Tejada’s death comes as the city marks a nearly 24% drop in murders this year.


As of Thursday, the city had seen 214 murders this year — compared with 280 during the same period last year, according to NYPD statistics.

BRONX NEWS: Student fatally stabbed at Bronx school laid to rest


A 15-year-old student stabbed to death in his Bronx classroom was laid to rest Saturday.


Matthew McCree, killed by a fellow student at the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation, was buried in Brooklyn’s Canarsie Cemetery after his funeral procession drove past his school. Dozens of mourners attended a funeral service before his burial.


“We mourn not only the life he was but the life he might have been,” Matthew’s aunt, Lacey Providence, told the Daily News during a wake on Friday attended by family members, classmates and Mayor de Blasio. “I will not see my nephew graduate from high school, go to college, get married and have children.”


Matthew’s death was the first time a student was killed inside a city school in over 20 years.


Abel Cedeno, 18, has pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder. Authorities say he used a switchblade bought on Amazon after weeks of being bullied for being bisexual.


Matthew threw broken pencil shards and wadded paper at Cedeno, sparking his rage, according to cops. But the teens had never clashed before the killing. Matthew’s friend, Ariane Laboy, 16, who tried to intervene, was critically wounded.

BRONX NEWS: CARIBBEAT: Spice Isle Caribbean Fusion Cuisine N.J.-bound


For years, some major feelings have welled up inside the heart and mind of veteran finance executive Joyce Joseph and she’s promised to share them with the public through her new Spice Isle Caribbean Fusion Cuisine restaurant, opening this coming weekend in central New Jersey.


Over the past few months, Joseph has been whetting appetites through social media postings of the establishment’s logo, artwork hanging in the dining room, and some of the cuisine featured at the restaurant on 41 Mountain Blvd. in Warren, N.J.


Now, Joseph has everything ready for her upscale restaurant’s grand opening weekend – Friday, Saturday and next Sunday.


Boasting a full cultural experience, she said there will be art, music on the weekend and, of course, amazing cuisine.

Virgin Islands seek donations to aid residents hit by Maria


Joseph – a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School – has spent a career in finance working for Wall Street firms, amassing a résumé that includes positions as managing director-global head of accounting and governance for Standard & Poors and a vice president for J.P. Morgan Chase.


With Spice Isle restaurant, some of Joseph’s longtime “diverse interests beyond finance” are being realized. “This particular interest, which is my love of food, wine and great dining, is close to my heart – and it has been for many years. It’s what I know; it’s my DNA,” she said, citing her family roots in Carricou, Grenada.


“We have authentic oxtails, jerk chicken, curry goat, but we also are going to have fusion.”


For Joseph, fusion means a blend of foods from the various Caribbean islands.

CARIBBEAT: Jah Jerry group gives scholarships to young people


“I’m taking the northern, the central and southern Caribbean islands’ flavors and also, with some dishes, adding American influence.”


So, for example, we have what we’re calling a Spice Isle Rib Eye. With that rib eye, we’re going to have Caribbean style herbs and seasonings and sauces to take that traditional American dish and give it a Caribbean flair.”


For pairings with entrees, wines are available at Spice Isle through a partnership with New Jersey’s Alba Vineyards.


“Caribbean cuisine, I believe, is underexposed. It’s just not out there. Particularly in central New Jersey where my restaurant is located,” said Joseph. “There are folks who love to go out and dine and try different ethnic cuisine.”

CARIBBEAT: Many pitching in for ’cane relief


“I feel it’s really important to introduce and promote ethnic and cultural diversity to people in various ways and for me personally I can’t see any better way to do that than with food,” she said.


Friday and Saturday dinner hours for Spice Isle are 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays. Closed on Mondays, the restaurant is open for lunch Tuesday through Friday from noon to 2:30 p.m. Dinner hours Tuesday through Thursday are 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A ‘SOCCER NATION’ DENIES U.S. A WORLD CUP BERTH

CARIBBEAT: Post-Irma aid is Carib-bound


The analysis of the Trinidad national soccer team’s defeat of the United States team – preventing the Americans squad from qualifying for the World Cup for the first time in 28 years – is simple: America is just not yet a “soccer country.”


The Associated Press described the Oct. 12 matchup in Couva, Trinidad, as a “bumbling, stumbling, tumbling World Cup qualifying campaign” for the U.S. national team, “resulting in a calamitous 2-1 loss to already eliminated Trinidad and Tobago.”


Only a tie was necessary for the U.S. to qualify for 2018 FIFA World Cup berth, but it was not to be. Many in Trinidad called last week’s win over America revenge. In 1989, the U.S. – after a 40-year drought – finally qualified for World Cup competition by beating Trinidad and Tobago, 1-0, on defensive midfielder Paul Caligiuri’s memorable “shot heard ’round the world” goal.


Veteran photographer Hayden Roger Celestin – who covered the 1989 match – is not surprised the U.S. could not muster a tie last week.

CARIBBEAT: Islands feeling pain from ’cane


“What America has to understand is, it is still not a soccer country, but as small as Trinidad and Tobago is, it is!” Celestin said, noting the twin island’s commitment to the sport.


“Apart from cricket, soccer is what we play from primary school to soccer leagues throughout the country,” said Celestin, a Brooklyn resident who was born and raised in Trinidad.


In the wake of the American loss, the campaign may be brewing to make America a soccer nation.


One example was a tweet from former Health and Human Services and Secretary and U.S. Soccer Federation board member Donna Shalala: “Unacceptable. For us in U.S. Soccer more than a wake-up call. Time for revolution. Need long term plan that is smart.”


REEL SISTERS FILM FESTIVAL — AND ANNIVERSARY


More than 30 films – produced, directed and written by women of color – are being screened in Brooklyn on Oct. 21 and Manhattan on Oct. 22 at the Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, according to Reel Sisters founder Carolyn Butts.


“I’m thrilled Reel Sisters is still on the front lines creating spaces where audiences can enjoy stories,” said Butts recently. “We are proud of this year’s film selections – everyone can go home feeling nourished by the journeys each filmmaker takes us on.”


In Brooklyn, Reel Sisters Family Day Weekend features films at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, 445 Albee Square in downtown Brooklyn, on Oct. 21.


The Oct. 22 film presentations will be held at the AMC Magic Johnson 9 Theater, 2309 Frederick Douglass Blvd., in Harlem.


Reel Sisters Film Festival boasts affordable ticket prices. For a schedule and tickets, visit www. reelsisters.org or call (347) 534-3304 or (212) 865-2982.


CARIBBEAN ‘ANCESTRAL MEMORIES’ ALBUM


Cuban-American jazz alto saxophonist/composer Yosvany Terry and award-winning French pianist Baptiste Trotignon have ventured into the Caribbean music to explore the roots of the jazz and blues music in their album “Ancestral Memories,” available on the Okeh/Sony Music France label.


The pair – along with bassist Yunior Terry and drummer Clarence Penn – will share their new music with New York audiences at the Jazz Standard, 116 E. 27th St., from Oct. 26 through 29, with sets at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.


“I wanted to celebrate all the voices of my ancestors, and do justice to the enormous contribution of the African descendants who populated the French Antilles and the Pan-African world,” said Terry, adding that his contributions to “Ancestral Memories” are also a tribute to his grandmother’s Haitian heritage.


Terry and Trotignon say the album includes blues, chants and African rhythms morphed during colonization in the French Caribbean.


“We wanted the music on this album to be generous, warm, languorous, violent like in spiritual island trances, and gentle like children’s nursery rhymes, all while trying to blend the sophistication of language with dance – our ancestral source of energy,” said Trotignon.


Learn more about Terry, Trotignon and “Ancestral Memories” at www.yosvanyterry.com. For show information, visit www.jazzstandard.com.


AFRICAN RESTAURANT WEEK CONTINUES


New York African Restaurant Week – eateries and foods vendors presenting more than more than 75 curated culinary events – will be held through Oct. 22 at restaurants and participating locations around the city


In addition to complimentary tastings and other culinary happenings, there will be Afro beats music performances, fashion and beauty events and art pop-up shops by luxury African retailer ONYCHEK.


Ten percent of all NYARF Megafood Festival proceeds will go to NYARW nonprofit partners City Harvest and Vocal New York. For information and locations, visit www.nyarw.com.


FANCY FETES FOR EDUCATION


Education will get a boost from the gala affairs of two Jamaican organizations – the American Friends of Jamaica and the New York Chapter of the Manning’s School Past Students’ Association.


The Manning’s School Past Students’ Association’s anniversary reunion ball – supporting ongoing school programs and the construction of a home economics building – was held yesterday at Eastwood Manor, 3371 Eastchester Road, in the Bronx, at 7 p.m.


“By assisting in the long run, we will continue to promote excellence in education,” said MPSA-NY President Paulette Porteous-Cole. Visit www.facebook.com/MPSANY for information.


The AFJ is holding its 2017 Hummingbird Gala on Oct. 23 at the Mandarin Oriental, 80 Columbus Circle at 60th St., in Manhattan. Benefitting programs in education, healthcare and economic development in Jamaica, the event features the presentation of the Hummingbird Award for International Philanthropy to businessman Vincent HoSang, president and CEO of Caribbean Food Delights; Joseph Matalon, chairman and CEO of ICD Group Limited; and Cecil Sam Wright, president of the Quality Auto Mall.


The gala also features dancehall/reggae singer Busy Signal. For tickets and information, visit www.theafj.org.


‘AMBASSADORS’ VS. B’KLYN POVERTY


As ambassadors for Brooklyn Community Services’ ONE Brooklyn Community “Many Voices, Many Stories” initiative, Caribbean-American interior designers Malene Barnett of Malene B and Ishka Designs founders Anishka Clarke and Niya Bascom, are highlighting the plight of Brooklynites living in poverty.


The three designers part of 26 “ambassadors” participating in the Investors Bank-sponsored MTA subway poster initiative, were in 36 Brooklyn subway stations.


Barrett’s mother was from St. Vincent and her father hailed from Jamaica. Both Clarke and Bascom’s parents are from Jamaican and Guyanese.
