Wild, stabbing crime spree ends on bloody New York subway

A 28-hour crime spree in New York City ended with the stabbing of a passenger on the No. 3 train in New York City's subway.

Maksim Gelman was arrested after attacking the passenger, and then pounding on the door of the motorman's compartment. Much to his surprise, two of New York's finest were in the compartment scanning the tracks ahead in an effort to find him.

After stabbing four people to death, injuring two others, and killing another in a hit and run, Gelman took to the subway tunnels to hide from police.

It's really worth reading this riveting tale, as told by the New York Times.
