Times Square Dave & Buster's murder investigated

A man has been arrested and charged with murder after a fatal stabbing inside the Dave & Buster's location in Times Square.

The killing apparently happened after two strangers got into an argument over a prize for a game and it turned violent.

According to the NYPD, police responded to a 9-1-1 call of an assault in progress at around 10:44 p.m. on Saturday night.

When officers arrived, they found 39-year-old Allen Stanford of Washington Heights with a stab wound to his chest.

EMS also responded, and took the Stanford to St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Jesse Armstrong, 41, of Harlem, was arrested and charged with murder over Stanford's death.

In the face of a rise in crime in New York City, Mayor Eric Adams met with NYPD officials on Saturday to brainstorm a plan to keep the city's streets safe.
