Couple injured, boyfriend arrested in domestic dispute in Central Park
A 30-year-old man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly slashing his girlfriend in the middle of a Central Park knoll.
Police were set last night to charge the unidentified man for assaulting the woman with a knife near Central Park West and 103rd Street around 11 a.m. Cops responded to the scene and chased the suspect up and down a hill before capturing him, an eyewitness said.
"When they went up there they drew their guns and told him to get on the floor," Michael Hernandez, 23, who works as a doorman at a nearby building, said.
The suspect allegedly assaulted cops but didn't slash them.
While the NYPD confirmed the two were a couple, they didn't confirn reports that their 4-year-old son was injured.
The unidentified girlfriend, 30, was taken to St. Luke Hospital in stable condition. The suspect allegedly slashed himself during the ordeal and was also taken to the same hospital and remained there for most of the day, according to cops.
Three officers were also hospitalized at New York-Presbyterian Hospital for minor injuries.
