Pennsylvania Self-Defense: Boy Justified In Fatal Stabbing Of Home Invasion Suspect In Allentown :: 01/25/2020

ALLENTOWN, N.J. (AP) – A juvenile who fatally stabbed a man who was attempting a home invasion robbery was justified in using deadly force because he acted in self-defense, authorities have determined. Luis Nieves, 48, forced open the door of an Allentown home around 5:30 p.m. Sunday and started attacking the youth, who lived in the home, according to the Lehigh County District Attorney’s office.

Nieves struck the youth with a metal cane during the struggle, and the boy stabbed Nieves.

Nieves and the youth were both taken to the hospital, where Nieves was pronounced dead a short time later. The youth, whose name and age were not released, was treated for undisclosed injuries and was later released.

The county coroner’s office determined that Nieves’ death was a homicide caused by multiple stab wounds and that the youth was justified in stabbing Nieves.
