A man allegely hacked his wife with a meat cleaver in the couple’s Flushing apartment early Wednesday morning and then chased the bleeding woman into the street before he was subdued by his son, police said.
Drops of blood traced the woman’s path from the family’s first-floor apartment near Ash Avenue and Parsons Boulevard, out the door and then down the street, where 53-year-old Kang Wang is accused of hacking his wife’s head and torso about a dozen times before the man’s son and a Good Samaritan broke up the fight, police said.
A verbal argument broke out shortly before 5:45 a.m., police said, and that argument escalated into a physical confrontation, according to police.
A pool of blood was still visible Wednesday afternoon on the sidewalk down the street from the family’s home.
The 52-year-old mother was rushed to New York Hospital Queens and was listed in critical condition, while Wang was booked at the 109th Precinct and charged with attempted criminally negligent homicide and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.
Police also believe Wang may have recently been released from psychiatric care, a source said.
