Man Wanted in Long Island Pool Game Stabbing

The victim was severely wounded in the assault.

Police are looking for the man believed to have stabbed another man during a pool game on Long Island last November.

Authorities say Ludwin Pereira, 32, walked into a convenience store in Wyandanch just after 1 p.m. Nov. 5 and headed to the back of the store where several men were involved in a pool game.

Pereira allegedly took one of the men aside and, after a brief conversation, took out a large knife from under his sweatshirt and stabbed the man he had been speaking with in the torso. The victim was severely wounded, police say.

The suspect ran off after the incident and is considered to be highly dangerous.

Ludwin Pereira is also known as “Luis” or Ludwin Reyes. His last known address is in Wyandanch.

Suffolk County Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest. Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect's whereabouts is asked to call 1-800-220-TIPS.

All calls will be kept confidential.
