Two Bronx men have been charged in the killing of a security guard on Tue., Oct 24 at La Casa Del Mofongo.
The men, Jonathan Gonzales-Alvarez, 21 of W. 233rd Street, and Luis Almanzar, 30, of Kingsbridge Avenue have been charged with second degree murder in the early-morning stabbing of Arsene Epouta, 29.
Epouta tried to remove the men from karaoke night at the St. Nicholas Avenue and W. 183rd Street restaurant.
A scuffle ensued, and Epouta, who lives on St. Nicholas Avenue, was stabbed multiple times inside the restaurant.
He was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
