A Brooklyn man nearly sliced off his father’s head with a “heavy duty” survival knife — plunging it into the side of his neck and killing him — as his grandmother slept in the next room, according to police sources.
“It looks like he tried to decapitate him,” a source said.
Troy Jones, 43, was found stabbed to death at around 10:35 a.m. Sunday, according to cops.
His son, Tyemear, 23, was being held at the 63 Precinct early Monday on murder charges and criminal possession of a weapon.
The young man’s grandmother discovered Jones’ lifeless body on a couch inside her Flatbush Avenue apartment — where she and him both lived — not long after waking up Sunday morning, sources said.
Tyemear didn’t get along with his dad and the two were known to fight often, the sources added.
Since his grandmother was asleep, she didn’t know exactly what unfolded inside the apartment before her son’s death. Cops said she last saw him around 10 p.m. Saturday.
When officers arrived at her home Sunday morning, Jones had a deep cut to the side of his neck — and Tyemear was nowhere to be found.
Sources told The Post that he had gone to New Jersey, where he’s been staying with someone he knows.
On Sunday, Tyemear was arrested for theft of services after he allegedly failed to pay for a taxi. A bloody knife was found in his possession, made by the company Fantasy Master.
The blade was described as a “heavy duty survival tactical knife,” according to sources.
Police in Jersey gave Tyemear a desk appearance ticket on Sunday, released him, and then put out an alert, notifying other law enforcement agencies of his arrest.
NYPD officials caught the alert and later picked him up at the house where he’s been staying. Tyemear was then transported to the 63 Precinct and charged in connection to his father’s death.
