NEW YORK - A 23-year-old Brooklyn man accused of going on a wild stabbing rampage Friday and Saturday that killed four and wounded two others was finally caught in a tunnel in the New York City subway system Saturday morning.
Maksim Gelman is accused of first stabbing his stepfather, Aleksander Kuznetsov â€?numerousâ€? times early Friday morning, according to the New York City Police Department.
Just 11 hours later, Gelman allegedly drove a few blocks away and stabbed his 20-year-old girlfriend Yelena Bulchenko, and her mother, 56-year-old Anna Bulchenko.
All three were found dead by policeâ€¦.

According to police, Gelman stabbed three people to death; committed carjacking against Art DiCrescento, 60, whom he sought to stab to death; murdered a 62-year-old man by running him down with DiCrescentoâ€™s Pontiac; and committed attempted murder by slitting the throat of a 40-year-old passenger on a subway train, over 24 hours after starting his rampage. Police caught Gelman trying to escape by running down a subway tunnel, after jumping off the train.
Police charge that before Gelman stabbed the subway rider, he pounded on the motorman`s door, shouting,"My girlfriend ruined my life!"
By then the girlfriend, Yelena Bulchenko, had been dead for about 16 hours; the passenger is in critical condition.

I guess now the feds will have to ban knives and girlfriends, at least for men.
