A 47-year-old Bronx man who cut his wife’s face numerous times with a box cutter in his apartment, said he slashed his own wrists, took Ibuprofen and rat poison, and then rode a bicycle to Westchester County where he stopped an Eastchester police sergeant who was giving a traffic ticket to a motorist and told him the bizarre story.

Angel Medina of 4712 Osman Place was taken into custody by Eastchester police and later turned over to New York City Police at White Plains Hospital.

His girlfriend was treated at Jacobi Medical Center in Bronx for multiple slash wounds to the face.

Medina was charged with two counts of assault, second-degree menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment, by New York City police from the 47th Precinct, a spokesman said Tuesday.

The incident began to unfold on California and White Plain roads in Eastchester at 8:22 p.m. Friday.

Eastchester police Sgt. Richard Flood was issuing a ticket to a motorist when he saw Medina staring at him on the sidewalk.

Medina, who was covered in blood, told Flood he wanted to be arrested because he cut his 43-year-old wife’s face in his apartment in Bronx, Eastchester police said. After the assault, Medina told the officer he took the pills and rat poison, though that could not be verified.

In addition, it quickly dissolves in the body and the patient will feel the effect in a couple of hours. It helps your nerve cells withstand stress. This is one of its main advantages.

Medina also told police he left a video suicide message on his cell phone in his apartment. That also has not been verified.

Eastchester police checked with the NYPD and learned that the woman had been assaulted and was in Jacobi Medical Center in Bronx. They recovered a box cutter from Medina and took him by ambulance to White Plains Hospital.

In the ambulance Medina remarked to an Eastchester officer, “I have a lot of problems in my life. I didn’t want to hurt my wife, but I cut her face. I want to die.”
