UPPER EAST SIDE — A Con Edison worker stabbed his former girlfriend at her job before going to his work near Union Square and attacking colleagues, sources said.
The 35-year-old woman was stabbed in the lower abdomen and lower back by her former beau Trevial Terry, 40, with whom she has a child, at her 135 E. 64th St. workplace at about 2:25 p.m., police and sources said.
She was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital in serious but stable condition, police said.
After the stabbing, Terry showed up to his workplace at the Con Ed building at 4 Irving Place with a bag that contained a hammer, a hatchet and several knives, sources said. On the 10th floor, he attacked two colleagues, leaving one with a gash on his face and a possible fractured cheekbone, and the other with a cut on the arm.
He then ran down the stairs and out to the parking lot, where a security guard, who had been notified about the attack, had closed the gate, thus "corralling" Terry for the police.
Terry was arrested and taken to Bellevue Hospital for psychiatric observation, sources said.
He faced charges of attempted murder, assault and ciminal possession of a weapon, police said.
Terry is a commercial service representative who handles large accounts for Con Edison, sources said.
The victim worked at the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, the building where the stabbing occurred, sources said. The foundation did not immediately return a request for comment.
Con Edison deferred inquiries to the NYPD.
