A man suspected in a series of stabbings and carjackings in New York was charged Sunday night with the murders of four people, authorities said.
Maksim Gelman (pictured) was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court on four counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, one count of assault, two counts of robbery and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, Brooklyn District Attorney's office spokesman Jonah Bruno said.
He will be back in court Monday, at which point he'll have a lawyer appointed for him, according to Bruno.
As he was led away from Brooklyn's 61st precinct to an awaiting police cruiser earlier Sunday, Gelman was deluged with questions from gathered media and hostile shouts from the crowd. After uttering an expletive, he said, "This
was a set-up, man."
Authorities said Saturday that Gelman allegedly stabbed three people to death, hit and killed a man with a car, slashed at least five other people and carjacked two vehicles before he was wrestled to the ground early Saturday
while attempting to break into the cab of a subway car.
