THE BRONX — Police arrested and charged a Bronx man in the broad daylight murder of a 22-year-old man in a Concourse Village bodega, police said.

Jason Dash, 28, was with two other men when they followed the 22-year-old into the bodega at Morris Avenue and East 168th Street on June 29 and punched and stabbed him repeatedly, according to the NYPD.

The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The identity of the deceased is pending proper family notification, police said.

Dash, who lives nearby on Sherman Avenue, has 16 prior arrests, including for assault, criminal possession of a weapon and marijuana possession, a police spokesman said.

He was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

It was still not clear why they attacked the man and his two accomplices were still on the loose.
