An elderly man was killed and two people were wounded — including a 4-year-old girl — in a machete attack inside a Brooklyn apartment building on Sunday night, police said.
The three victims were targeted in what is believed to be a domestic incident in a second-floor apartment at a building on Putnam Avenue near Nostrand Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant at about 6:20 p.m., police and sources said.
A 32-year-old man allegedly first slashed the little girl’s right leg, according to law enforcement sources.
He then fatally stabbed a 79-year-old man in the stomach, sources said, before slashing a 49-year-old man to the right hand.
The elderly victim died at a nearby hospital. The two other victims were hospitalized in stable condition.
A witness to the attacks held the suspect until police arrived, sources said.
The madman was in custody on Sunday night.
