Ruben Feliciano will be 28 years old next month and he survived a brutal stabbing on St. Marks Place on August 22, 2010.
Note from Suzannah B. Troy Here is the photo I took the morning after the stabbing of the crime scene on St. Marks Place which is why Ruben contacted me.
Ruben was violently stabbed in the chest. He was stabbed in his right ventricle in his heart- he blacked out and was taken to Bellevue hospital. He told me they supposedly resuscitated him twice. He also has a large scar on his head. The photos show him with his brother 5 days after the stabbing -- at the Trauma ward at Bellevue.
Ruben was at Sing Sing Karaoke on St. Marks Place celebrating some good news with his cousin. His cousin was also assaulted and although he was not wounded as badly as Ruben he was really suffered post-traumaitc stress from attack. (I, Suzannah can empathize as I am suffering now from being assaulted in a medical office.)
Ruben left Sing Sing to buy cigarettes at the Deli when he got in to an altercation with two men.
Here is report from The Villager Police to read what happened.
