Family of One Victim “Numb” By Their Loss; Preparing to Bury Son This Weekend
Police arrested a man they say was one of the attackers in the stabbing of Nicki Minaj’s roadies.
Philadelphia Police believe Pierce Boykin , 31, stabbed Eric Parker several times outside of the Che Bar and Grill last week after an argument. Parker, 27, was still in critical condition Tuesday, Philadelphia Police told Bossip.
Cops picked up Boykin Monday in Philadelphia, and he’s facing charges including attempted murder, aggravated assault, terroristic threats and simple assault.
Police are searching for others involved in the senseless stabbing. They believe another man murdered Da’Von Pickett, 29, outside the bar, stabbing him several times in the torso.
Meanwhile, Pickett’s family members told Bossip they learned of the arrest Tuesday morning, and his mother, Darcia, was “numb” from the loss of her only son.
The mother insisted that her son was trying to protect a female bartender from the suspect’s posse’s unwanted advances, according to a relative. Pickett was escorting the woman to her car when the stabbers pounced.
Pickett’s funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Feb. 28 at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Brooklyn.
