A New York City man has been arrested after he allegedly stabbed his grandfather to death with a machete and injured two other relatives, including a 4-year-old girl.

Police say the 22-year-old man, who has not been identified, attacked his 79-year-old grandfather on Sunday evening at an apartment building in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood in Brooklyn. When police officers arrived at the scene, they found the grandfather stabbed in the abdomen along with a 49-year-old man who was slashed in the hand and a 4-year-old girl who was slashed in the hip.

The grandfather was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police.
