Bronx Man Stabbed By Girlfriend In Stairwell Where He Slept On Nights She Wouldn’t Let Him In

A Bronx woman is now in police custody after allegedly stabbing him to death in their apartment building’s stairwell, Daily News reported.

On Saturday, at around 10:30 P.M., John “Biggie” Levestone began knocking in the door of the apartment he shared with girlfriend Crystal Fryson. Despite the 37-year-old begging to be let in, Fryson refused. The two then began a shouting match. “He was shouting and screaming at her,” said neighbor Justin Sanchez. “She kept shouting back from inside the apartment, ‘I don’t want to talk to you, you piece of s***!’”

After a few minutes of back and forth, Levestone gave up and started walking towards the nearest stairwell, where he frequently slept when he was not allowed inside their apartment. On his way there, he attempted to break neighbors’ Ring cameras as he passed by them. “Now his broke a** is running,” Fryson was heard yelling from behind their apartment’s front door.

Moments later, when Levestone was well into the stairwell, Fryson and two other women left the apartment to follow him, leaving a small child waiting and watching from the doorway. “He stopped hollering and went into the stairwell and she came out screaming,” Sanchez recalls. “The real fighting happened in the stairwell. They just kept yelling in the stairwell but I don’t know what happened after that. I just heard children start screaming and crying.”

Fryson was then heard yelling in the stairwell as the two women she was with sprinted back to the apartment. “Move back, move back, move back, move back!,” she can be heard yelling at her boyfriend. “I dare you to come over here.”

Shortly after, police arrived to find Levestone with stab wounds. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he sadly succumbed to his wounds. Fryson was arrested and charged with murder, manslaughter, and weapon possession.
