  • Wake Forest basketball coach charged in deadly Queens attack on tourist

- A Wake Forest University assistant basketball coach accused of punching and killing a New York City tourist surrendered to police Thursday, according to NBC New York.

Jones allegedly punched the late tourist, identified as Sabor Szabo, early Sunday after he was being disruptive and banging on cars in Long Island City.

Jones is entering his second year on Demon Deacons' coach Danny Manning's staff. According to multiple reports, Szabo knocked on multiple vehicle windows while looking for an Uber.

The coach got out, followed Szabo to the sidewalk, clocked him and sped off, police said. Jones was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court Thursday evening, and he has been charged with third-degree assault with intent to cause physical injury to another person. He is awaiting arraignment on an assault charge.

Information on Jones' lawyer wasn't immediately available.


"We will make a further statement after we learn more about the matter".

According to Jones' biography page on the Wake Forest website, he coached college basketball at Central Florida, Florida Gulf Coast and Virginia Commonwealth before coming to Wake Forest.

"His attractive spirit and his love of life will remain with us", the company said in the Facebook post.

"He was always upbeat, positive, kind and caring", the post continued.

Szabo, who lived in Boca Raton with his brother, always had a bright smile and shared a love of fishing, cooking and family, the company said. "We are going to miss him dearly".
