Feathers flew from Tessa Majors’s down coat as she was stabbed in the frenzied attack, Detective Vincent Signoretti said one teen suspect told him during a court hearing on Friday. Tessa battled in vain to fight off the muggers in the attack at 7pm on Wednesday in upper Manhattan’s Morningside Park, biting one assailant on the hand, the juvenile court heard. The 13-year-old male suspect who appeared in court on Friday claimed he just watched as his two friends, who are similar in age, carried out the murder during the trio’s botched mugging, according to police. Another 14-year-old is being held, and police are now seeking the third suspect. At Friday’s hearing, the court ordered the 13-year-old held without bail. The name of the boy, a Harlem resident, is being withheld because he will be tried as a juvenile delinquent in family court.
