MANHATTAN CRIMINAL COURT — The attorney for a Bronx man who randomly slashed a woman in Chelsea will present his client's psychiatric records to a judge next month, he said Wednesday.
Kari Bazemore, 41 — who has also been tied to at least three other attacks against women — was found unfit to stand trial back in April, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office said.
Bazemore’s attorney Paul Feinman agreed to the judge's request to present his client’s psychiatric and mental health records by Bazemore's next court date on Sept. 22.
Police arrested Bazemore on Jan. 7, a day after he allegedly slashed a woman outside 163 W. 23rd St., between Sixth and Seventh avenues as she walked to work.
Bazemore has also been accused of slashing a 28-year-old woman in the face near the Clocktower building in Port Morris and hitting a 43-year-old woman in the face with an “unknown blunt object” inside a bag last November as she walked on Fifth Avenue.
He also punched a 32-year-old woman in the face in Greenwich Village and was released from custody for that crime only days prior to the Chelsea slashing, authorities said.
He is currently being held at the George R. Vierno Center in East Elmhurst, city Department of Correction records show.
Neither the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene nor NYC Health + Hospitals could say whether he is currently receiving psychiatric treatment.
Feinman declined to comment on Bazemore’s current status following Thursday’s court appearance.
