'Mentally Ill' Son Allegedly Killed An Elderly Brooklyn Couple By Stabbing Them: Know More Here

Authorities claimed that inside a home in Borough Park, 75-year-olds Jacob and Rachel Sperber were found suffering from several stab wounds just before 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.

After being brought to a nearby hospital, the couple was declared dead.

The couple lived in a close-knit Hasidic community, and Fox 5 NYC was told they were all in shock.

The couple’s 46-year-old son, who the neighbours regarded as disturbed, was the one responsible for the attack, they said Fox 5. Police would not confirm that as of Saturday night, but Fox 5 said the son had barricaded himself inside the home.

On a stretcher, the suspect was removed.

Shmiel Weiss, a local, told Fox 5 that “he was mentally ill, and they loved him and thought he would be fine.”

The inquiry is still underway, and charges are not yet complete.

Fox News Digital was unable to reach the New York City Police Department for comment on the case at this time.
