A crazed Brooklyn man hacked his wife with a meat cleaver in an attack that left her in critical condition, all because she swept a broom over his feet, according to a published report.
Youshening Huang, 53, allegedly told police through a translator that "she swept over my feet and that really sparked it," according to The New York Post.
Yesterday's attack began after Shao Ling Ye, 54, swept over her husband's feet as he was making breakfast in their Bay Ridge apartment, the paper reported.
"I heard a lot of arguing going on," neighbor Joseph Tsang told the Post. Tsang, whose father owns the building, translated Huang's statements to police. "I heard someone running around. It's usually peaceful up there. I didn't expect anything to go on upstairs."
Huang's wife stumbled downstairs desperately trying to find help. Neighbors treated her cuts as they waited for help to arrive.
"There was blood all over her," neighbor Candice Meng told the Post. "I just heard her shouting, 'Help.'"
Meng also told the paper that Huang showed no remorse and even asked if he could wash his hands in her apartment.
Ye was in critical condition with numerous cuts to her head and all over her body. Her husband has been charged with assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, the paper reported.
