Suspect in NYC stabbing spree: I'm victim of setup


NEW YORK — A man accused of going on a 28-hour stabbing rampage through New York City shouted that he was the victim of a "setup" as he was led from a police station.

Maksim Gelman was awaiting arraignment Sunday in Brooklyn on charges that he hacked three people to death and killed an elderly pedestrian with a car. Police say he stalked the city, attacked innocent strangers and hijacked vehicles.

A small throng of Brooklyn residents taunted Gelman as he was escorted out of a police precinct wearing a white jumpsuit.

The 23-year-old yelled back, cursing and yelling that it "was a setup" as he was led to a vehicle.

He was scheduled to be arraigned on charges including murder, assault and robbery.
