Security Guard busted for Attempted Murder

Nathaniel Thomas Jr.

A security guard finds himself in prison tonight after being accused of trying to kill Antelope Street resident, twenty-eight year old Ellis Ortiz on Sunday. Thirty-two year old Nathaniel Thomas Junior, also of Antelope Street, was arraigned this morning for Attempted Murder, Dangerous Harm and Use of Deadly Means of Harm. He was unrepresented when he appeared before Magistrate Roberto Ordonez and pleaded not guilty to all charges. Ortiz reported to police that he was socializing with a seventeen-year-old minor when Thomas approached them, armed with a knife. Thomas allegedly stabbed him once on the abdomen, four times on the back and once on the arm. He remains hospitalized in a stable condition at the KHMH. Thomas will be behind bars until March sixth when he is to reappear in court.
