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.
