West Haverstraw man nicknamed ‘Beast’ gets long sentence for Central Nyack stabbing
Joel Point DuJour, 25, who was released from prison on parole in January 2011 after convictions on assault charges in 2006 for a 2005 stabbing in Rockland County, was also sentenced by state Supreme Court Judge William A. Kelly in Rockland County Court in New City to serve five years of post-release supervision after he gets out of prison for his guilty plea to first-degree assault.
Point DuJour was initially charged with attempted murder, assault and weapons possession in connection with the 4 a.m. incident on Sept. 2, 2013, at El Molino bar on Route 59 in Central Nyack, at The Hub shopping center. The incident sparked a manhunt by Clarkstown police and federal authorities, which ended with the arrest of Point DuJour on Sept. 7, 2013, by New Jersey police at the Saddle Brook, N.J., Holiday Inn.
In the incident at El Molino, a 30-year-old Nanuet man was stabbed and a 25-year-old Nanuet man was slashed.
