The attack happened this morning before 9 inside 1 Haven Plaza on Avenue C near 12th Street.
The suspect, who lives on the 19th floor, reportedly ran down to the 8th floor where he stabbed a man and his daughter, who is deaf, following a dispute.
Per the Post: "The suspect, in his 30s, who neighbors say lives on the 19th floor with his mother and suffers from mental-health issues, was taken into police custody after he led officers on a brief chase."
It was not clear what led to the attack. The victims were taken to Bellevue.
Per one report:
Friends told NBC 4 New York at the scene that the suspected stabber had texted a friend several days ago that he was going to "snap" and wanted to go back into the church where he wanted to be a minister. He may have recently broken up with his girlfriend.
The suspect and the male victim were martial arts partners and played music together, friends said.
I live in this development for over 50 years and obviously it's disturbing. My heart to those impacted.
The man ran down the stairs from the 8th floor bleeding and the woman got in the elevator naked and bleeding and made it to the lobby. I think the woman was the wife not the daughter of the man who was stabbed.
Very upsetting. Do you know their conditions?
Disturbing is an understatement; don't they have professional suites in Haven Plaza? I used to see a doctor there.
Initial reports are injuries not life threatening. Here's a yahooee link to a news clip with images of suspect.
I have lived here for the past 64 years and I have never known both of the injured parties and the alleged suspect. I have such an ache in my heart. This is really painful for everyone. Prayers for everyone and their families.
Haven Plaza opened in 1966 -1967.
How could 2:24am have lived at Haven Plaza "the past 64 years" when (if) it opened in 1966-67 / 50-51 years ago?
Thank you all for the prayers. I'm the sister of the woman who was stabbed. She is not the victims daughter, she is his ex-girlfriend. She is not deaf, and she is recovering from her inguries. We thank God that they are both OK.
This was not his daughter it was his girlfriend. She isn't deaf.
