Brooklyn man Gregory Alfred was arrested for randomly slashing a woman’s neck on March 10th, and told police he did it because she’s white.
According to The New York Post, Alfred, 25, was arrested in New Jersey in connection with the March 10 slashing of 53-year-old Janina Popko in Ditmas Park. Popko was cut in the neck by Alfred, who was actively hoping to harm White people because they prevent him from “freely smoking marijuana.”
His mother, who resides in Sayreville, NJ, called the police after hearing about Alfred’s actions on the news. In addition to his bizarre reasoning, he also blamed “the system” for his alarming behavior. Police found his fingerprints on the discarded knife.
Popko said she’s happy to be alive:
“He’s just a sick person,” Popko told The Post on Tuesday. “I’m very lucky to be okay. I am still shaky. I never was racial. I grew up in Poland, they never teach us to be racial,” she added. “I didn’t grow up with this racial thing.”
Alfred will officially be charged by the NYPD.
