Gelman then fled in a stolen Lexus, police said. He then dumped that car and carjacked a Pontiac, stabbing the driver, who was later reported in stable condition, reportsThe New York Times. In the second car, Gelman allegedly ran down a pedestrian, who died later at a hospital.
Early Saturday morning, a subway rider recognized Gelman on the No. 3 subway train near Times Square, and alerted authorities, the New York Post reports.
Gelman then allegedly attacked a 40-year-old passenger aboard the train, stabbing him in the neck.
The passenger survived, and police later caught Gelman after he fled down a subway tunnel, the Post reports.
