Police Arrest Man for Cutting Off His Wife’s Arms in New York
NEW YORK - June 25, 2018
Young Lu chopped off the arm of his pregnant wife during a domestic dispute in a Brooklyn attack on Thursday. His 31-year-old wife was inside her Sunset Park home near 55th Street and 5th Avenue — waiting on her 7-year-old son to come home from school. Using a steak knife, Lu attacked the woman around 12:20 p.m., splitting her right arm at the bicep and two fingers on her left hand.
A neighbor accidentally overheard what was going on and called 911.
By the time the police and ambulance arrived, Lu had already fled. His wife was lying on the floor bleeding profusely and in critical condition.
She was taken to the hospital, where she was placed in a medically-induced coma and unfortunately died 2 days later from the massive blood loss.
