A Rego Park man turned himself into police today for fatally stabbing of a 35-year-old Ridgewood woman on Sunday, according to police.

Anthony Hobson, 48, who lives at 99-41 64th Ave., allegedly stabbed Jennifer Irigoyen to death in the vestibule area of her 60-80 Myrtle Ave. apartment building at around 1 a.m. on Feb. 3.

Irigoyen, who worked as a real estate broker, was five-months pregnant when Hobson allegedly stabbing her repeatedly in the neck and stomach.

Irgoyen had lived on Saunders Street, in Rego Park, prior to moving to Ridgewood about a year ago.

Hobson turned himself into the 104th Precinct station house earlier this morning, police said.

He is being charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence, abortion and criminal possession of a weapon.

I don’t know what this beautiful woman saw in this ugly, old man. Just can’t understand why women make some of the bad choices they do….SMH


We are all individuals so is this case, this has to be delt with in an individual case. Special cercu.stances. Not to be used as political platform for political gain. Sorry

Thanks to Cuomo and the DEMOCRATS there will be no prosecution for killing her unborn baby. That is how much they love abortion. In other words, the perp “aborted” his baby and no penalty under RHA – the “Reproductive Health Act” which is anything but healthy.

Whine-a whine-a

The article specifically mentions he’s been charged with abortion. Once you learn how to read you might not be so outraged at everything all the time.

You do make a good point though: the government should make a woman’s mind up about her own reproductive health, not the woman herself. You know, “small government”.
