It was a crime with neither rhyme nor reason. A pregnant woman, speaking Friday from her hospital bed, recounted how a deranged poet jabbed a knife into her neck after a random leg bump on a packed Bronx subway car.
“I want this man to die,” recovering mom-to-be Shaday Tripp said while hooked up to IV tubes at Lincoln Hospital. “That’s what I feel like. He almost killed me … There’s a hole in my neck.”
Once-popular Harlem street rhymist Derrick Wilson snapped during the Thursday night subway ride, gashing Tripp’s neck before stabbing her friend Zakia Lewis twice in the left arm, police said.
