19-Year-Old Twins Stabbed, One Fatally, After Rejecting Man In Brooklyn Bodega

Samyia Spain was stabbed to death, and her sister Sanyia was stabbed in the arm.

Two 19-year-old Brooklyn twins were attacked and stabbed after rejecting a man’s advances. He retaliated by killing one of the girls and leaving the other wounded.

According to the Daily News, Samyia Spain was stabbed to death, and her twin sister, Sanyia, suffered a stab wound to the arm at a bodega in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn early Sunday morning. A man who was reportedly drunk tried to hit on Samyia, and according to their grandfather, Alphonso Goodson, she told the man she did not “want to be bothered” with him. Then the store owner kicked him out, and he left the store angry.

Goodson told the New York Post that the man “started kicking on the door” and banging after he was kicked out of the bodega. The man was outside waiting for the twins, who were with friends when they came out of the store. Then he attacked them.
