On Monday, police in Brooklyn made an arrest in connection with the weekend slayings of an elderly man and a lady.
Joevani Vale, 26, reportedly cut a 31-year-old woman in the right leg on Nevins Street in Boerum Hill around 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. She was in stable condition when she arrived at Methodist Hospital.
Yet, Vale is suspected of murdering an 83-year-old man in the Wyckoff Gardens apartments on Nevins Street less than an hour later.
The body of Ramon Cintron was discovered by an elevator.
Vale was taken into custody on a Monday afternoon at Brooklyn’s Maimonides Medical Center, where he had checked himself in for psychiatric treatment. There are still open cases against him.
Ramon’s nephew, Angel Cintron Junior, said that he was just released from the hospital after having pacemaker issues.
“Always somebody who was a performer,” Angel stated. The humor came easily to him.
According to Angel, after his uncle was released from the hospital, he went to a bodega nearby to play the numbers.
According to Angel, “That’s where the suspect or the guy they think killed him first spotted him.”
Vale was said to be donning a black ball cap, sweatpants, and a dark sweatshirt. He was seen on surveillance footage, likely in a stairwell.
A neighbor, out of the blue,” Angel remarked. Yes, a neighbor. Someone he had seen before; maybe he had said hi to them.
Those who knew Ramon at Wycoff Gardens said he was well-liked and enjoyed a good party. From celebrating his birthday in November to hanging up Christmas decorations that are still on display, he has had a lot to celebrate this year. The neighbors are sad because he brought so much happiness to their lives.
Robert Crispin, a close acquaintance, described him as “simply a lovely man.” You’d think that at 80 or so, he’d pass away peacefully at home rather than at the hospital or after waking up. not returning home”
The police are looking into a further incident that happened within a few blocks of the first and believe it may also be related to Vale.
A 47-year-old lady reported being followed and hit in the shoulder at 12:50 p.m. on 3rd Avenue between Pacific Street. The assailant ran away on foot when she declined medical treatment.
Vale was arrested three times before: in 2020 for assault, in 2016 for forceful touching, and in 2015 for public lewdness.
According to word around the street, Ramon and Vale both called the same apartment building home.
On Tuesday alone, there were more than 50 fake notifications of critical crises to school districts. Reporter Shirleen Allicot says.
