WASHINGTON HEIGHTS, Manhattan (WABC) — A man was arrested and charged Sunday in connection with a string of subway attacks that left two people dead.
Police say 21-year-old Rigoberto Lopez is charged with murder and attempted murder in four separate attacks on the A subway line.
Authorities say when they caught him, he still had a knife in his possession and was wearing the same clothing he was seen in on surveillance video.
Police said Lopez is likely homeless, his last known address is a homeless shelter in Brooklyn.
Deputy Chief Brian McGee said the attacks were unprovoked, and the victims did not initiate anything. He also said that Lopez was previously hospitalized for mental illness.
The crimes are just the latest in a string of violence in the subway across the city.
In Saturday’s violence, officials investigated four total incidents, two of which were fatal, of stabbings and slashings that occurred on A line subway trains in less than 24 hours between Friday at 11:20 a.m. and Saturday at 1:28 a.m.
Officials say a man was found with numerous stab wounds to his neck and torso onboard an A train around 11:30 p.m. Friday night stopped at the Mott Avenue subway station in Far Rockaway, Queens.
EMS arrived and pronounced the unidentified victim dead at the scene.
Dindu Barbeque (Feb 15):
A registered sex offender from Philadelphia has been arrested in connection with human body parts that were found in the back of a U-haul truck and inside a burglarized home, including deep-fried hands and feet.
Taray Herring, 47, was arraigned on Saturday on abuse of a corpse and burglary charges, as well as counts of criminal trespass, theft, and evidence-tampering. He was ordered held without bail…
Although the victim has not been officially named, neighbors have identified him as 70-year-old Peter Gerold, who they say ran a massage therapy practice out of his home on Sanibel Street.
Police said that on Wednesday, someone from a out of state called them, asking to perform a welfare check on Garold. Officers arrived at the residence but did not force their way inside because the home seemed secure and there were no signs of a break-in.
After interviewing Herring, police found body parts inside Garold’s unattached garage and evidence that someone had tried to burn the remains.
Neighbors described Garold as a kind person who shared honey from his beehives with them, and who was known for offering work to random people seeking to make some money.
They said they had not seen him for about a week and had grown concerned for his well-being.
‘He helped out a lot of people, so you know it was somebody that he probably helped out at one point that came back and did this to him,’ one neighbor told CBS Philly.
