Staten Island man stabbed to death at engagement party
It was a deadly pissing match.
A Staten Island man was knifed to death at his engagement party early yesterday when two of his brothers went outside to urinate against the wall of a restaurant — sparking the deadly melee.
Anthony Lacertosa, 27, was stabbed in the torso with a butcher knife.
“This guy stabbed me! Call an ambulance!” he said.
His fiancée desperately administered mouth-to-mouth resuscitation in a valiant attempt to save the life of her love as he lay bleeding profusely outside Espana Restaurant, a source said.
But Bridgette Schneider, 24, couldn’t revive her would-be husband — and his friends couldn’t stanch his wound with a pile of restaurant linens they held to his ribs.
“They kept soaking through over and over,” said a witness.
Lacertosa, who had seven siblings, died at Staten Island University Hospital South.
Today seems like Staten Island Day.
