Queens man knifes sister’s boyfriend in Thanksgiving invite fight


An angry Queens man stabbed and critically injured his sister’s boyfriend during an argument over who to invite to Thanksgiving dinner, police said Wednesday.


The man, identified by sources as 56-year-old David Williams, arrived home to his place on Anderson Road near 179th St. in St. Albans, where he quickly got into an argument with his sister.


Then, authorities said, he grabbed a knife.


Williams apparently wanted to invite his girlfriend to Thanksgiving dinner — but his sister Dianna Gadson disapproved.

A shouting match followed.


Then Williams shoved Gadson, 66, to the ground, prompting her boyfriend, Silas Stewart, to order Williams to keep his hands to himself, police said.


“I want you the f–k out of here,” Williams responded before stabbing Stewart with a kitchen knife, police said.


The attacker then ran out and drove off in a silver Ford, according to authorities. He’s still being sought.


Stewart, 54, remains in critical condition at Jamaica Hospital.


“People are nuts. You can’t stab family,” said Ayrian Chang, 30, who works at a Home Depot and lives on the block.


He said sometimes you just have to walk away.


“That’s nuts,” Chang added. “Right before Thanksgiving. Because of Thanksgiving.”


Deshaun Broomfield, 25, who also lives on the block, said police swarmed the area.


“Four or five patrol cars, paddy wagon, the FDNY EMT came with the ambulance, and there was also a fire truck that came, too,” he said.


“(The police) were sitting in the house all night waiting for him to come back.”


The stabbing happened in a two-story brick attached house, with a large wooden sign in the front window reading “God Bless.”
