Father ‘pushes baby and ex-girlfriend out of third-floor window… then climbs down fire escape to attack them again’

A 19-year-old father has been arrested after  he pushed his ex-girlfriend and three-month-old baby out a third-floor window  then climbed down the fire escape so he could continue attacking them as they  lay unconscious on the ground.

Frederico Bruno, of Belleville, New Jersey,  was found hiding in a refrigerator on Friday evening after the brutal attack,  which has left the 20-year-old woman and her baby fighting for their lives,  according to NBC  News.

Police said Bruno let himself in to his  former girlfriend’s Jersey City apartment on Friday morning and hid while he  waited for her to come home.

When she returned with the suspect’s baby and  a friend, he allegedly attacked the woman and turned on her 21-year-old friend  with a carving knife when she threatened to call 911.

After slicing the friend to within an inch of  her life, Bruno then climbed down the building’s fire escape and, using a table,  continued to attack the mother of his child, who was lying on the ground on top  of her child after the pair had plunged three stories out the window, police  said.

The ex-girlfriend had an order of protection  against him, authorities said.

According to NBC, Bruno fled to a family  member’s home after the alleged attack and slept for most of the day, then told  his teenage niece and nephews what had happened when he woke up.

‘I know he’s always had a bad temper but I  never thought he could do this,’ Bruno’s niece, 17-year-old Ahsley Archelus,  told NBC. ‘To a baby? How could he do this to his own baby?’

Police cordoned off the area surrounding the  four-story building on Rutgers Avenue as they searched for Bruno, whom they  called armed and dangerous.

They eventually found him hiding in a  refrigerator in a vacant building near where his siblings live.

Bruno is facing three counts of aggravated  assault charges. Bail was set at $300,000 for each count.
