Police officer brings homicide suspect Norbert Williams into the 100 Precinct on Wednesday morning.
Police from the 100 Precinct have corralled Norbert Williams, 52, the man wanted for stabbing Joseph Smart, 47, to death at the Hammel Houses last weekend.
Police sources said that Williams was tracked down to Dontown Brooklyn, where he was hiding out, by members of the precinct’s anti-crime team.
Police responding to a 911 call at 1:35 a.m. on Sunday morning, June 18, for a man injured at 82-01 Beach Channel Drive in the sprawling Hammel Houses public housing complex, found a man, later identified as 47-year-old Joseph Smart, of the same address, unconscious and unresponsive in a hallway.
The man had suffered multiple stab wounds to his back and torso, police said.
EMS workers who responded declared the man dead on the scene.
Williams quickly became a person of interest and he was quickly tracked down to our neighboring borough.
On Thursday morning, Williams was awaiting arraignment on charges of murder and criminal possession of a weapon, court sources say.
