A scissors-wielding lunatic stabbed and slashed five victims in a Riverside Park rampage before he was subdued Tuesday morning by a brave passerby, police said.
An 18-month-old boy and his father were among those targeted as they strolled through the Manhattan park before the unprovoked 7:58 a.m. attack by a homeless man, police said.
Crazed assailant Julius James Graham, 43, who was living at a Harlem shelter, unleashed his rage without warning on a bright October morning. He was taken down by a passing good Samaritan and held until police arrived.
New York City - safest it's been since the 1940's!
So says Howard Wolfson.
Except for the motorcycle gangs taking over the West Side Highway, the lunatics slashing people in Riverside Park, the crazed men punching people into comas in Union Square and the gay bashing gangs stomping people in Brooklyn.
