Wild melee erupts at NYC migrant shelter as residents throwing bottles are stabbed

A wild weekend melee broke out at a Manhattan hotel being used as a migrant shelter, with three of its residents throwing bottles and then getting stabbed as payback, cops said Sunday.

Brothers Jordy Torres-Cabezas, 33, and Dilan Pachecho-Cabezas, 16, were tossing bottles with another man, Alejandro Pollo, 19, at the Stewart Hotel at West 31st Street and Seventh Avenue around 12:55 a.m. Saturday, police said.

It wasn’t clear who they were launching the bottles at — but one of the projectiles ended up striking 23-year-old Andiley Nazaire, police said.

Nazaire responded by stabbing the two brothers in the back with shards of the broken glass, cops said.

All four men were charged with assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon, cops said.

The brothers were taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition.

Torres-Cabezas, Pachecho-Cabezas and Pollo list the hotel as their address, cops said.

A brawl broke out at a Manhattan hotel where migrants are being sheltered on January 21, 2023.
