2 Charged In Bronx Attack That Police Believe Left Man Dead

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Two men were charged Monday in a fight in the Bronx that police believe was responsible for a man’s death.

Police were called around 8:45 p.m. Sunday to Stratford Avenue between Westchester and Watson avenues, in the Soundview section of the Bronx. They learned that a fight had broken out in front of 1134 Stratford Ave., police said.

Two men, ages 23 and 26, had gotten into a quarrel with a 30-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman, police said. The suspects both punched the 30-year-old man in the face, causing a cut to his mouth, swelling to his face, and redness to his head, police said.

The woman was kicked in her left leg and also punched in the face, and suffered bruises and redness, police said.

The two suspects were arrested at the scene, police said.

Around 10:35 p.m., police found an injured man with difficulty breathing inside a nearby building. Police determined the 30-year-old man was also injured in the assault, the NYPD said.

While waiting for an ambulance, the man lost consciousness and required CPR from officers, police said. He was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The man who died was identified as Jose Lucero, 30, of the Bronx.

On Monday, two suspects were charged in the incident. Andrixs Suarez, 23, of the Bronx was charged with manslaughter recklessly causing death and three counts of assault, while Rosario Wander, 26, of the Bronx was charged with assault and harassment, police said.

Woman Charged After Huffing Cleaning Supplies That Caused Frostbite In A Walmart

This is somehow both sad and frightening at the same time!

A woman has been accused of huffing cleaning supplies in public last week after shoppers at a Kansas Walmart noticed her getting high in the aisles.

Apparently, Melissa Ann Wright is now facing charges after she was caught on camera abusing the industrial cleaner Ultra Duster.

According to Tama Sawyer of the University of Kansas Poison Control Center, the effects of the computer cleaning supply is so strong, that it can cause your heart to be extra-sensitive to regular hormones like Adrenaline and actually kill you.

But that’s not even the worst part, because the chemical also causes frostbite to the skin on contact!

Melissa clearly endured damage to the skin on her face after huffing the cleaner, but refused medical attention at the scene.

Hopefully these charges can lead to Melissa getting the help she needs.

New Zealand announces final shortlist for new flag design – live

The national flag consideration panel will publish its list of four alternative designs, to be voted on in a public referendum

New Zealanders be like:

I made a gif for you @Hypnoflag pic.twitter.com/ebQSH3DSdU

No take is hotter than that of Guardian Australia’s comment editor, Adam Brereton, and he’s just filed:

ah yes, new zealand. the country with a big decision ahead of it: which bad flag design will the rest of the world ignore from now on

new zealand: we must choose a new symbol for our nation, to represent our people rest of the world: hush now adults are talking

the idea that you just summon a new symbol up out of a committee and suddenly everyone’s into it is a bit odd

imagine going through all this effort to create a new flag for a country that should have been a state of australia anyway

i will do everything in my power to destroy new zealand’s "like Australia, but nice and with better beer" image

new zealand: you have made a powerful enemy this day

new zealanders do not @ me unless it’s to admit you stuffed up by not being a part of the commonwealth

A pedestrian is reflected on an electronic board showing the graph of the recent fluctuations of the Japan's Nikkei average outside a brokerage in TokyoAsian shares were skittish in early on Tuesday after logging their worst month in three years and the dollar struggled as investors braced for data from China that could raise fresh fears about the health of its economy. Losses on Wall Street also soured sentiment after comments from Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer heightened fears among investors of a potential U.S. interest hike in September. China's official factory sector activity likely shrank at its fasted pace in three years in August, according to a Reuters poll of economists.

      Kenbrell Thompkins Released by Raiders: Latest Comments and Reaction

      The Oakland Raiders trimmed their roster Monday with the regular season approaching and waived wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins, according to Pro Football Talk.

      Thompkins played 12 games for the Raiders and two for the New England Patriots in 2014 and finished with 262 receiving yards and zero touchdowns. The undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati is yet to establish himself as a consistent threat at the NFL level despite the speed that helped him run a 4.54 second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

      Thompkins had one last chance to impress during Sunday’s preseason contest against the Arizona Cardinals but turned in a disappointing one catch for seven yards. Asher Mathews of TFDS Sports acknowledged the receiver’s poor play:    

      The Raiders added some pass-catching weapons this offseason after a last-place finish in the AFC West, which did not help Thompkins’ chances at making the team.   

      Amari Cooper jumps out as the fourth overall pick from the 2015 NFL draft. He is fresh off a 2014 campaign at Alabama that saw him rack up 1,727 receiving yards and 16 touchdown catches as a Heisman Trophy finalist.

      Oakland also added Michael Crabtree as a proven veteran alongside the young Cooper. Crabtree should take some pressure off the Alabama product with his ability to make catches over the middle and exploit single coverage.

      Tight end Mychal Rivera (534 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 2014) and receiver Andre Holmes (a team-high 693 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 2014) provide depth outside the top two options. There simply wasn’t much room for Thompkins on the Oakland roster, especially after he failed to make much of an impact in preseason games.
