BROOKLYN — A soccer player has been arraigned on murder and attempted murder charges for stabbing two players after a Williamsburg match.
Eswin Gramajo, 27, a Prospect Heights resident who police said had no criminal past, was arrested in North Carolina in December. He was brought back to New York last week and arraigned Saturday in Brooklyn Criminal Court, prosecutors said.
Witnesses told police they saw Gramajo stab Delvin and Oscar Martinez, two brothers from the opposing soccer team, multiple times outside Juan Campos Morel Secondary School, at 215 Heyward Ave. in Williamsburg, on Dec. 11, prosecutors said.
Delvin Martinez, 31, was pronounced dead. His 29-year-old brother was critically wounded, police said.
In early January, police also arrested 22-year-old Franklin Paredes in connection with the knife attack. Paredes faces attempted murder, assault and weapons charges for attacking Oscar Martinez, according to court records.
Information about Gramajo's lawyer was not immediately available. He is being held without bail and was due back in court on Monday, court records show.
