Dejesus told police the pair met in a wooded area near the Grand Army Plaza and smoked pot. After smoking Dejesus performed a sex act on Andrews, before fatally stabbing Andrews, the Daily News reports.
Dejesus was the person who called 911 claiming the stabbing was done in self-defense.
Brooklyn DA Won't Pursue Charges
Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez later announced his office won't pursue charges against the Westchester County man.
“The individual who stabbed the deceased called 911 to report the incident claimed that it was self-defense to stop a sexual assault, and helped officers locate the person,” a spokesman from the Brooklyn DA told the Daily News. “Any charge is premature as the police investigation has produced insufficient evidence to disprove a justification defense. We will continue to investigate.”
The NYPD would not comment on the Brooklyn DA's investigation, saying only that police continue to investigate.
