NEW HYDE PARK, NY – A New Hyde Park man has been arrested for a disturbing incident that took place on Saturday night in Nassau County. The suspect, identified as Joshua Wilck, 24, allegedly entered his parents’ bedroom and violently attacked them with a knife.

The victims, a 60-year-old man and a 64-year-old woman, were sleeping in their Cherrywood Drive residence when the assault occurred. Wilck reportedly continued to assault his parents as they tried to escape from their home. Once outside, he proceeded to wrap his arms around their necks.

Thankfully, responding officers swiftly intervened and managed to remove Wilck from the victims. He was immediately taken into custody. Both of the victims sustained severe lacerations and were rushed to a local hospital. They are currently in critical but stable condition.

Wilck is facing a slew of charges, including two counts of attempted second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault, criminal obstruction of breathing, aggravated criminal contempt, criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, and resisting arrest. He was scheduled to be arraigned at the First District Court in Hempstead this past Sunday.
