Freeport man in custody for allegedly stabbing wife


A Freeport man is in custody after he allegedly stabbed his wife multiple times on Magnolia Boulevard in Long Beach on Tuesday, Long Beach Police Commissioner and Acting City Manager Michael Tangney said.

Ramon Bonifacio, 60, was charged with attempted murder in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon with a previous conviction.

The attack occurred at around 2:20 p.m., south of Penn Street, according to Tangney. The victim — who police said was stabbed 10 to 12 times — was admitted to South Nassau Communities Hospital in Oceanside and is in stable condition, he added. She was working as a home health care aide in Long Beach.

“We notified Freeport police to be on the lookout for him, and they captured him and brought him back to Long Beach,” Tangney said.

Bonifacio is being held in custody at the Nassau County Correctional Center. He appeared in Long Beach City Court before Judge Corey Klein and was remanded without bail. He is set to appear in Nassau County Court on Jan. 7, Tangney said.

Police did not identify the victim. Tangney said that the investigation is ongoing.
