Surveillance video shows man getting stabbed in neck in North Miami Beach

Surveillance video obtained Tuesday by Local 10 News shows the moment a man got stabbed in the neck outside a food store in North Miami Beach.

North Miami Beach police said Donald Brown, 42, was arrested Monday on an attempted first-degree murder charge.

According to authorities, the victim was stabbed Sunday afternoon during a confrontation outside the Jiffy Food convenience store at 1540 NE 165 St.

According to an arrest report, Brown claimed that the two men first got into an argument outside a nearby cellphone store because the victim threw a glass of water in his face and “disrespected him.”

Police said Brown waited for the victim to leave the food store, approached him from behind and stabbed him several times in the right side of his neck with a pocket knife. 

Police said the victim ran back into the food store and someone called 911.

Authorities said Brown also went inside the store to grab his bag and then fled south before police arrived.

Witnesses said the victim, who they identified as Jamul Myers, is a father of three who didn’t have any ongoing conflicts with anyone.

“He didn’t bother nobody or nothing,” Aletha Mitchell said. 

Police said Brown was found at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he confessed to the stabbing. 

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Lt. Felipe Lay said the victim was taken to Aventura Hospital, where he is listed in critical, but stable condition.

It’s unclear why Brown was at JMH, but police said he remained there on Tuesday in police custody.

Woman accused of burning son’s hand on stove granted supervised visits

A South Florida woman accused of burning her 6-year-old son’s hand on a hot stove to discipline him has been granted supervised visits with her child twice a week.

Miriam Rebolledo, 29, appeared in court Tuesday, where she was surrounded by relatives, friends and her husband, who is not her son’s biological father.

A Miami-Dade County judge agreed to allow Rebolledo to have supervised visits with her son for now followed by therapeutic visits.

The boy remains in foster care, but could be temporarily placed with a relative if the results of a home study are positive.

“I want you, ma’am, to come up with a list of all of the relatives who are perhaps willing to take custody of the child,” the judge said.

So far, a relative and a close friend have offered their homes as temporary shelter for the boy in hopes that he doesn’t have to spend the holidays in foster care. 

Police said Rebolledo was arrested Thursday on an aggravated child abuse charge.

Authorities said the woman claimed that she placed her son’s hand on the hot stove because a school employee called her to say that he had been hitting other children at school on Wednesday.

“My son is so rebellious that he got to the point to kill an animal. What am I supposed to do? Stay home without doing anything for my son?” Rebolledo said in Spanish as she left the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Thursday night.

Rebolledo told police that she was overwhelmed and didn’t know how else to discipline her troubled son. 

She was released from jail after posting $7,500 bail.

Hollywood police search home in connection with death of pit bull found in suitcase

Hollywood police executed a search warrant Tuesday in connection with the death of a pit bull named Ollie who was found badly injured in a suitcase last month, Hollywood police spokeswoman Miranda Grossman said.

The search warrant was executed at a home in the 1900 block of Lee Street. 

Grossman said no one is in custody and the investigation is ongoing.

Police said the 1-year-old pit bull was found Oct. 10 stuffed inside a suitcase behind an abandoned building.

Ollie died Oct. 12 at the VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital.

Hollywood police said the dog’s paw was sticking out of the suitcase when officers found Ollie about 1 a.m. Oct. 10 behind 1945 Lee St.

Ollie had severe lacerations to the top of his head and body.

It was later determined that Ollie had been stabbed and beaten.

Ollie’s story quickly went viral after he was rescued.

“People from all over the country and a couple of international people have reached out to let us know they have seen Ollie’s story and they are pulling for him,” said Dr. Nicole Patterson, a veterinarian at Hollywood Animal Hospital. 

Broward Crime Stoppers has increased the reward for information that leads to the arrest of the person or people who ultimately killed Ollie to $34,800. Hollywood police said the police department cannot account for any agencies or individuals who are independently offering additional rewards.

Tipsters may remain anonymous when calling Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
