Man stabbed to death in Central Islip

CENTRAL ISLIP - Suffolk County Homicide Squad detectives are investigating the stabbing death last night of a Central Islip man.

Third Precinct police officers responded to 7 Pinewood Ave. after a 911 caller reported that people were yelling at that location. When officers arrived, they found Carlos Velasquez, 40, lying in the street with a stab wound to the torso. He was taken to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore where he died.

Witnesses identified Wilfredo Flores of 50 Jensen Road, Bay Shore as the assailant and held him until police arrived. Flores, 28, was arrested and has been charged with first degree manslaughter.

Flores is being held at the Third Precinct and will be arraigned today at First District Court in Central Islip.
