A New Jersey teen has been charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of a 20-year-old man in The Bronx, police said Friday.

Edwin Portes, 19, was taken into police custody on Thursday morning and is facing charges of murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

The victim, Giovanny Pimentel, was found with multiple stab wounds in front of Bronx Community College around 1:30 a.m. on Dec. 21, police said.

He was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in critical condition and died six days later.

Portes has been arrested in New York twice in the last two years, once in December 2018 and again in February 2019 –– both for petit larceny, according to police.

A Gofundme page created to fund Pimentel’s funeral expenses has raised over $25,000 of the family’s $20,000 goal.

“Giovanny was the best cousin, brother, friend, uncle, boyfriend and most importantly SON,” the page said. “An innocent young guy filled with love, laughter, and happiness. Being at the wrong place at the wrong time, Giovanny was stabbed in the heart which caused him to loose all his blood and oxygen to the brain and was diagnosed with brain death.”
