Five members and associates of a Greenville street gang have been sentenced to prison for their roles in a gang-related stabbing.

U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced today that Yahsier Brown, 21, was sentenced today to 51 months in prison. Jaylen Boone, 22, was sentenced on May 2, 2023, to 56 months in prison. Jamil Bowens, 22, was sentenced on April 5, 2023, to 53 months in prison. Divine Abraham, 22, was sentenced on March 3, 2023, to 51 months in prison. Jermaine Jennings, 22, was sentenced on Jan. 4, 2023, to 57 months in prison.

All of the defendants were also sentenced to three years of supervised release. All of the defendants are Jersey City residents, and all were sentenced by U.S. District Judge Kevin McNulty in Newark federal court.

Last week, Sheldon Mays, aka “Thottie,” 23, pleaded guilty before Judge McNulty to one count of assault with a dangerous weapon – a knife – in aid of racketeering.

The stabbing of the rival gang member took place on Aug. 3, 2020. The defendants, all of whom are associated with a street gang operating in and around the Curries Woods Public Housing Complex in Greenville – identified as “Curries Woods” or the “Tay Tay Shrimp Gang” or the “Sharks” – apparently did so in retaliation for a prior gang-related assault.

At the time of the assault, the victim was walking down a Jersey City street when Mays and the others approached in two cars. They parked in the middle of the street, and proceeded to punch and kick him. During the assault, Mays stabbed him, inflicting life-threatening injuries.

The extent of crime in Jersey City is unknown.

Without explanation, the Fulop administration stopped publishing monthly CompStat data in June of 2019.

New York City residents — and those of many other cities — have access to fresh crime data, including shootings, from weekly CompStat reports posted on the city’s website.
