Oceanside Man Accused of Slashing Mother’s Boyfriend

An Oceanside man has been arrested for slashing and wounding his mother’s 60-year-old boyfriend during an argument that turned physical early Sunday morning, Nassau County police said.

Jimmy Godsey, 28, was  charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Police said the victim asked Godsey not to go into his mother’s room at their Sunnybrook Drive home when a fight broke out, the two began pushing each other and Godsey slashed the victim with a folding knife in the neck at 12:45 a.m.

Godsey ran out of the house and surrendered when officers arrived shortly later.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening injury.

Godsey will be arraigned Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.
