The man “followed Russo-Elling before slamming her to the ground, mounting her and relentlessly stabbing her…”
Authorities charged Peter Zisopouloss, 34, with murder and weapon possession in connection with the stabbing death of EMT FDNY Lt. Alison Russo-Elling.
Russo-Elling was a first-responder at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
From The New York Post:
Peter Zisopoulous [sic], 34, also faces a weapon possession charge in connection to the senseless attack on the 61-year-old paramedic, who was stabbed more than 20 times at 20th Avenue and 41st Street in Astoria around 2:20 p.m. Thursday, police said.
Zisopoulous followed Russo-Elling before slamming her to the ground, mounting her and relentlessly stabbing her, according to police sources and sickening video of the deadly attack.
A witness confronted the madman, but he snarled, “F–k you, f–k you!” before stepping away from his victim and charging at the scooter-riding pedestrian while still holding the knife, police sources said.
The victim — whose injuries included a deep, lethal wound to the chest — was left unresponsive on the ground after her callous attacker ran off, according to sources and the video.
The attack happened when Russo-Elling went to buy some food. The police described it as “a random and completely unprovoked attack.”
A person chased Zisopoulos down the street. He “barricaded himself” in his apartment.
Here is the link to the video on Twitter. I did not view it. But the Democrats and leftists need to witness what happens in their lawless cities.
Russo-Elling “joined the FDNY as an EMT in March 1998 and was promoted to a paramedic in 2002 before becoming a lieutenant in 2016.”
The authorities said “there doesn’t appear to have been any prior contact between” Russo-Elling and Zisopoulos.
But law enforcement sources told The New York Post that Russo-Elling’s EMS unit transported Zisopoulos to a hospital in April 2018 “after he made anti-Asian threats online.” Doctors “diagnosed” him “with a serious mental health condition at the time.”
It’s probably a coincidence, but man. No words.DONATE
