CO-OP CITY - Police say the grandson of an 83-year-old Bronx man who was stabbed to death Thursday is a person of interest in the case.

EMS crews pronounced him dead at the scene.

Officials say Marcus Dobson has also had 13 prior arrests.

They say his family members have told them he may have mental health issues.
