A South Ozone Park teen has been arrested and charged with stabbing D’Anthony McDonald to death, police said Tuesday night.

Wilson Rivera, 19, was charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the NYPD.

Rivera lives about three blocks from where fellow South Ozone Park resident McDonald was murdered, police said.

At about 9 p.m. Friday, police were called to Linden Boulevard near 129th Street, where they found McDonald with a stab wound to the chest.

McDonald’s heartbroken father, Erick Anderson, said he had attempted to perform CPR on his son, to no avail.

McDonald had been taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

I'm glad the little demon got caught. He will feel the wrath of god in jail n will suffer in hell everyday when he dies. I have no pity for the punk who did this. I hope he gets the max or life in prison without parole. You kill someone, you deserve to die too.

I knew that latin kid in the neighborhood. He looked like he had mental problems as he walked the blocks. His mother was a loud mouth sec8 chick. He had like gangster meetings at his house regularly. Guess he will be with all the thugs that he had wished for where he is going now.
