Long Island Man Stabs Parents in Their Sleep, Chases Them Outside Trying to Strangle Them – Crime Online

A 24-year-old New York man’s parents are in critical condition after he allegedly stabbed them in their sleep and then chased them out of the house and continued the assault.

Joshua Wilck, a US citizen, reportedly went into the Long Island bedroom of his 64-year-old mother and 60-year-old father on Saturday night and attacked them with a knife. When his parents tried to run, he followed them outside and wrapped his arms around one of the victim’s neck. Responding officers dragged him off and arrested him.

The parents were listed in critical but stable condition at the hospital Sunday evening, News 12 Long Island reported.

Wilck ws charged with attempted murder, assault, criminal obstruction of breathing, aggravated criminal contempt, criminal possession of a weapon, and resisting arrest.

Nassau County police did not provide a motive for the attack.

“It’s surprising,” said neighbor Karishma Tank. “You never really hear about stories like that. It’s a quiet neighborhood. People get along with each other.”

Wilck is due in court for an arraignment on February 26.
