NYC: Wife insult sparked parking spot spat that led to Queens man stabbing driver

A Queens man charged with attempted murder for allegedly stabbing a driver over a parking spot hit the roof when the victim insulted his wife, witnesses told The Post Monday.

Anthony Thomas, 58, exploded with rage when he caught the victim, Gregory Williams, moving a traffic cone that was holding a space right outside Thomas’ home on Mentone Avenue just after 5 p.m. Sunday.

“I need two spots, one for mine, one for my wife’s car!” Thomas came out of his house screaming, according to the witness, who asked not to be named.

Williams, 49, who was visiting friends in Laurelton and trying to park his 2016 black Infiniti Q50, snapped back, “You don’t own the f–king block!”

The witness claimed Thomas disappeared inside his house for a moment and then came out with a 9-inch butcher knife tucked in his sock to confront Williams — as Thomas’ wife stood in the doorway telling him to “bring your ass in the house!”
