Crime News: Unprovoked Attacks in Queens Lead to 5 Stabbings, Suspect Apprehended, Police Report

In recent crime news, a suspect linked to at least five unprovoked stabbings across Queens this month has been apprehended, as reported by a spokesperson from the New York Police Department. Jermain Rigueur, 27, is now facing charges including multiple counts of attempted murder, assault, attempted assault, and criminal possession of a weapon.

Prior to the arrest, authorities were searching for an individual who, according to NYPD Chief of Patrol John Chell’s statement at a news conference, was “randomly stabbing people with a hunting knife.” The victims, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, were unrelated, and the attacks occurred over a 9-day period between midnight and 8:30 a.m. in southern Queens.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams mentioned on Thursday that Riguer had attacked six people, though investigations are ongoing. The most recent incident, on Wednesday morning, resulted from a verbal dispute between the suspect and victim on a bus, according to NYPD Chief of Detectives Joe Kenny.

Surveillance footage revealed the suspect “talking to himself” and “stabbing the front window of a bodega” after the attacks, as explained by Kenny during the news conference.

On Wednesday, a 71-year-old man and a 41-year-old man were stabbed minutes apart while walking. The police are actively searching for the knife-wielding assailant responsible for these seemingly unprovoked attacks, which also included a woman stabbed in the torso while walking home on Tuesday.

The first recorded attack took place on January 8, targeting a 61-year-old man while he was walking, as per police reports. All these stabbings were described as “very random, not a word was said, totally unprovoked,” according to Detective Kenny.
