A massive manhunt ended on June 5 when officers from the NYPD’s 113th Precinct arrested a suspect in the Brooklyn stabbing attack that killed a 6-year-old boy and badly wounded a 7 year-old girl.

Daniel St. Hubert, 27, of Jamaica Avenue in Brooklyn, was charged with second-degree murder, second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and a pair of graffiti-related charges.

St. Hubert is accused of killing Joshua Avitto in an elevator and wounding the girl.

Published reports said St. Hubert had gotten out of jail nine days before, having served time for attempting to strangle his mother.

Law enforcement sources told the Chronicle that St. Hubert’s mother lives near where he was picked up.

The Brooklyn District Attorney’s office last week would only acknowledge that St. Hubert had been arraigned and was expected to have legal counsel appointed to defend him.

Welcome to the discussion.
