A man of Guyanese parentage was arrested and charged with five counts of attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed five persons who were celebrating Hanukkah on Saturday in New York City.

The suspect identified as Grafton Thomas, 37, was arrested on Sunday by two lawmen at West 144th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard.


During a press conference yesterday morning, Thomas’ lawyer Michael Sussman stated that the suspect’s  mother Kim Thomas, a registered nurse moved to the US in the 1980’s.

The UK Daily Mail reported that the mother did not speak during the press conference and the attorney said the mother was obviously deeply concerned about those who were victimized by this as well as about her own son and his status.
