NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say a man went on a 28-hour stabbing rampage that took the lives of his stepfather, his ex-girlfriend and her mother.

Authorities say 23-year-old Maksim Gelman of Brooklyn also hijacked two cars, fatally hit a pedestrian and stabbed four other people.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly on Saturday called the case "horrendous and bizarre." He says charges are pending.

Gelman was apprehended Saturday morning in a Times Square subway station minutes after a man was stabbed and wounded on a crowded train.

Gelman's stepfather was knifed at about 5 a.m. Friday in his Brooklyn home. Later Friday, a 911 call led police to the bodies of Gelman's ex-girlfriend and her mother a few blocks away.

None of Gelman's relatives could be reached for comment Saturday.
