The NYPD arrested a homeless man dubbed the "A-Train Ripper" following a series of knife attacks that left two homeless people dead along the NYC subway system's A train line.

Police say Rigoberto Lopez, 21, was splattered with his victims' blood when he was taken into custody in Upper Manhattan on Saturday, Feb. 13.

Lopez was homeless and had a history of mental illness, according to reports.

Police recovered a blood-stained knife from Lopez. His shoes were splattered with his victims' blood.

The vicious stabbings left two people dead and two others injured. Hundreds of cops were deployed to hunt the "ripper" in a city where government officials defunded the police department following a summer of riots and political unrest.

Late Friday night, a man was found slumped over in his seat on an A train at Mott Avenue station in Far Rockaway. He suffered stab wounds to his neck and torso, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

At 1:15 a.m. Saturday, a 44-year-old woman was found in a pool of blood under her subway seat inside an A train at the 207th Street station in Inwood. She had stab wounds all over her body. She later died at a local hospital.

Two other victims, a 43-year-old man and a 67-year-old man, are being treated for stab wounds at area hospitals.

The stabbing spree sent shockwaves through the community, as New Yorkers complained about the lack of police presence in the subways, which are mostly empty due to the Covid.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea announced 500 additional cops to be deployed across the city immediately, the NY Post reports.

The stabbings follow a series of violent subway attacks, which included a commuter shoved onto the tracks.

A 23-year-old software engineer for Microsoft has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend.

King County prosecutors charged Ahmed Hassan Osman with first- and second-degree murder in the stabbing death of Nyaruot Chuol, 20, at an upscale apartment complex in the 24600 block of 64th Avenue South.

The coroner reported Chuol suffered multiple stab wounds to her neck, back and abdomen. Osman was arrested after a neighbor called 911 to report a disturbance on Sunday, Jan. 24.

Osman is also charged with the aggravated assault of Chuol's cousin in the second floor hallway. The victim told police that Osman fled to a nearby apartment.

Osman barricaded himself in the apartment and refused to come out until a SWAT team deployed tear gas canisters through a window.

Osman then exited apartment and was taken into custody. The cousin told investigators that Osman and Chuol were involved in a sexual relationship that deteriorated over the past weeks. She said Chuol had blocked Osman's number in her cellphone.

She said, on the morning of the murder, she and Chuol were at Osman's apartment drinking and smoking marijuana when Chuol and Osman got into an argument after she refused to have sex with him. Osman slapped Chuol who became enraged and the two lovers fought.

Osman ordered the two women to leave his apartment. Chuol then began breaking items in the apartment. She broke dishes and used a small knife to carve a television and a laptop.

The two women left the apartment but returned to retrieve Chuol's cellphone. A second altercation began and Osman pilled out a handgun and pointed it at Chuol's cousin's head.

He put the gun down and the cousin picked the weapon up and tucked it into her waistband.

The women left the apartment again and were waiting for the elevator when Osman emerged from the apartment with a large kitchen knife.

He stabbed Chuol in the abdomen and tried to stab the cousin but she blocked the knife with her arms. He stabbed Chuol again and again. She died before medics could save her.

Osman was hired by Microsoft directly out of college at age 21 and was recently promoted, according to the Seattle Times.

Osman is being held at the King County Correctional Facility in Seattle on $5 million bail. His bail was increased from $1 million after prosecutors learned he had access to considerable financial resources, according to the Times.

He had an annual salary of between $163,000 and $207,000. He also owned rental property in Kent and detectives found paperwork for a newly purchased Tesla.

His arraignment is set for Feb. 8 in the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent.

A GoFundMe page raised over $7,000 for Chuol's funeral expenses.

After mutilating Praskovya (left), Leikovic (right) calmly showered and went out on a date with her boyfriend.

"She stabbed her mother with a knife and then cut out the heart of a living woman," a police source said, according to DailyMail.com.

"It is hard to believe but she cut out the heart in the most literal sense of the word."

Following her arrest, Leikovic appeared in court wearing a black leather jacket, blue jeans and a silver face mask.

She was filmed lying down on a bench while grooming her nails in the courtroom.

When asked by a journalist whether she had killed and mutilated her mother, Leikovic laughed and replied: "Goodbye."

An uncle told a reporter her mother returned home from working in Germany and believed her daughter was strung out on drugs.

He said Praskovya arranged for Leikovic to enter a drug rehab facility. He couldn't believe that his niece stabbed his sister to death.

"It took two hours for the police to tell me Anna is the main suspect. I could not even imagine this," he told a reporter.

Leikovic's nearly 13,000 Instagram followers were stunned by the news. Many continue to leave words of sorrow and anger under her photos.

A Texas woman who cut her friend's baby out of her uterus told a state trooper she had just given birth.

Reagan Hancock, 21, died on Friday, Oct. 9, after Taylor Parker, 27, cut her unborn child out of her uterus. Reagan was eight months pregnant and due to deliver a baby girl in November.

During a traffic stop, Parker told a Texas state trooper she had just given birth and she was on her way to the hospital because the baby stopped breathing.

The baby was pale with bluish discoloration around her lips. Parker and the unresponsive baby girl were rushed to a hospital in McCurtain County, Oklahoma, where the baby was pronounced dead.

Family members said Reagan and Parker were friends and Parker had taken photos at Reagan's wedding in Texarkana in September 2019.

Abby Mathis told a reporter that Reagan was worried the baby would come early. "I'm scared she's fixing to come faster. I feel like she's going to be here before November."

Mathis said she told Reagan, "Let's pray she stays in there as long as she can so she's extremely healthy."

Reagan's mother, Jessica Brookes, told The Daily Beast she found her daughter "mortally wounded" in her New Boston home on Friday.

Reagan's grandmother said Reagan was attacked while her 3-year-old daughter, Kynlee, was asleep in her bed.

Brookes said Reagan and her husband, Homer, worked hard. She said Reagan worked at a seafood restaurant right up until her death, even though her ankles were swollen.

"They worked so hard to have what they had," Brookes said. "She never quit working. She didn't call in sick. The only time she missed work was when she had a doctor's appointment."

Brookes said she last spoke to her daughter the night before she died. Reagan had already given her unborn baby a name: Braxlynn.

She said Reagan saw signs that Braxlynn would be born soon; she had a bag already packed for a hospital stay.

"Everybody says you can have memories," Brookes said. "Well, you don't want to just have memories. You want to have your baby. And we never got to meet Braxlynn. We're in pieces. I'd never wish this on anyone."

A Florida police union lost a motion to keep the identity of the white police officer who shot and killed female-to-male transgender NaTosha "Tony" McDade a secret.

McDade, who was described as a "black transgender man" by liberal news media outlets, was fatally shot by a Tallahassee police officer on May 27.

Police responding to a call about a fatal stabbing around 10:45 a.m. saw McDade who fit the description of the suspect, armed with a handgun.

An eyewitness told reporters McDade stabbed a man then fled the scene on foot.

Police approached McDade. According to a police report, McDade "then made a move consistent with using the firearm against the officer, who fired their issued handgun, fatally striking the adult female suspect."

Angry transgender activists took to social media to correct the victim's gender and to criticize police and the news media for "misgendering" McDade.

Tallahassee Police Chief Lawrence Revell said "anger is justified" after several Black people were killed by white officers in the state.

McDade's death is the third officer-involved shooting in Tallahassee in two months.

The police union tried to keep the officer's name a secret using "Marsy's Law." But the judge rejected the motion, saying the Attorney General would need to review the motion.

McDade was initially identified as a woman on social media.

"A black girl was just killed in Tallahassee by cops. She was walking alone and minding her business. Shot five times," one user tweeted. "Non-male so I know you mother***kers don't care. Just talking to myself..."
