Authorities say they have arrested the man accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend at her Jersey City home and forcing her out a third-floor window while she was holding her infant in her arms Friday morning.
The Hudson County prosecutor's office said police apprehended Frederico Bruno, 19, in Belleville, N.J. Friday evening. He was found inside a refrigerator in a vacant building near where his siblings live.
Bruno's family members said he went to their home after the alleged attack and slept for most of the day. When he woke up, he told his teenage niece and nephews what had happened.
He claimed his ex-girlfriend was trying to stab him while holding their baby, family members told NBC 4 New York. That's when he pushed her and the child out the window and fled, they said.
Police say Bruno had a key to his ex-girlfriend's Jersey City apartment and had been hiding inside Friday morning, waiting for her to get home. When she returned with her baby, who is also the suspect's child, and a friend, Bruno allegedly attacked her.
Both the 20-year-old mother and the 3-month-old baby are hospitalized in critical condition, police said.
