Man Arrested in Clarkstown Homicide

According to Clarkstown Police, a young homeless man was arrested in the early Tuesday morning death of a 66-year old resident. Police responded to a multi-family home on Demarest Avenue in West Nyack just before 2:00 AM, where they discovered the body of Michael Wimbert who had been fatally stabbed in the chest by 19-year old Dylan Lentini yelling to call 911 while fleeing the home, and he was found later by officials with a knife wound on his right hand. Investigators stated that Wimbert lived alone in the second floor apartment of the home, and they are looking into how the two men may have known each other. Lentini claimed to have been living at the Covenant House homeless shelter in Manhattan, and it is unclear what he was doing at the older man’s home, though the landlord of the building told the Journal News that Wimbert was a charitable man who had a tendency to help others. Lentini was charged with a felony count of second-degree murder and is facing 15 to 20 years to life in prison.
