According to multiple reports, Nathaniel Rivers, a beloved Bronx resident, died on Thursday after he was stabbed while inside his vehicle.


Nathaniel Rivers was 35 years old.


At about 1:15 p.m., Nathaniel Rivers, 35, parked his car in the Norwood section of the Bronx when Franklin Mesa, 19, allegedly approached him. New York Police Department officers said words were exchanged between the two men, ABC7 reported.

The station reported that Mesa allegedly reached through the vehicle’s window and stabbed Rivers in the torso. CBS, citing police, says that the attack was unprovoked.

Rivers’ wife, sitting in the passenger side of the vehicle, grabbed a pry bar and allegedly hit Mesa to “fight him off,” police said, according to the New York Post.

Mesa ran away from the scene but was tracked down soon afterward by police.

According to online jail records, Mesa was arrested and charged with a single count of second-degree murder. He is scheduled to appear in front of a judge on Wednesday. It was unclear whether he obtained an attorney to speak on his behalf.

Rivers’ stepdaughter, Aaisha Shah, told ABC7 that she couldn’t believe he was gone.

“It’s annoying. It’s frustrating. I’m angry. I don’t even know,” she told the station. “It’s been 24 hours, and it doesn’t feel real.”

An unidentified neighbor spoke to the station and said Rivers knew everyone in the community.

“Everybody in the neighborhood loved this man,” the man told the station. “He’s known everywhere. He shared love and support.”
