Jewish Immigrant Kills 4 During Rampage In New York
The crazed man who killed four people during a daylong rampage was nabbed early Saturday in a Manhattan subway station – but not before he brutally attacked another innocent victim.
Maksim Gelman, 23, repeatedly stabbed a man on a No. 2 train on the upper West Side just after 9 a.m. but could not escape the army of cops who closed in minutes later.
Investigators believe Gelman hopped off the train when it stopped just shy of the Times Square station.
He then crossed the tracks to an uptown No. 3 train, on which he was grabbed by police.
Gelman stared icily ahead as he was put into a waiting NYPD car minutes later. It was unclear if he was injured.
The 40-year-old man he stabbed on the train at the 96th St. and Broadway station was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition, police said. He suffered several wounds to his head and chest.
One cop was also hurt, though the extent of the officer’s injuries were not known.
A bloody knife was found on Gelman, police said.
