(NEW YORK) — A suspect has been arrested in connection with a stabbing of two children last weekend in New York City.

Police said Daniel St. Hubert, 27, was caught a short time after police publicized his name. He was charged with a crime that shocked the Brooklyn neighborhood where 6-year-old P.J. Avitto lived. Avitto and a friend were thinking of getting ice cream on Sunday evening when police say St. Hubert attacked the children in the elevator of their building with a kitchen knife.

The friend, seven-year-old Mikayla Capers, survived, but Avitto died at the hospital.

At the time of the stabbing, St. Hubert had been on parole little more than a week, police said.
