A 24-year-old man has been arrested in the stabbing death of 20-year-old Manos Ikonomidis.

According to police, Sunset Park resident Christopher Membreno was taken into custody on Tuesday, June 20 and charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon in connection to the Monday, June 19 stabbing of Ikonomidis.

Ikonomidis, a Gravesend resident, was found by police unconscious and unresponsive with a stab wound to the chest and trauma to the body at around 4 a.m. on Monday, after what multiple reports claim was a threesome gone wrong inside 355 16th Street in South Slope.

According to reports, Membrano – who beat the victim with a bat before fatally stabbing him – was under the impression that Ikonomidis had raped his girlfriend. Rather, reports claim, the victim – along with a third man, identified as 21-year-old Jack Doherty – had participated in what police, at this time, claim to have been a consensual threesome with the woman though they are still investigating what exactly happened.

The slaying was set in motion, according to reports, once Ikonomidis began filming the romp, after which Doherty drove the woman home to Staten Island, and – after hearing from his girlfriend – Membrano and at least two other men stormed the South Slope building seeking revenge.

The victim was pronounced dead after being transported to Methodist Hospital.
