A man arrested in the stabbing death of a 6-year-old boy in Brooklyn was charged with murder, attempted murder and other offenses on Thursday, police said.

Daniel St. Hubert was arrested Thursday night after police connected him to the fatal stabbing of Prince Joshua Avitto, who was attacked with 7-year-old Mikayla Capers while the pair went to get ice cream on Sunday night, according to the NYPD.

St. Hubert was charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder, assault in the first degree and two counts criminal possession of a weapon. He also faces two charges for allegedly making graffiti when he was arrested, police said.


A law enforcement official said on Thursday police are reviewing video that may link St. Hubert to the stabbing of a 53-year-old man on a Chelsea subway platform three days after the Brooklyn stabbing. The man was attacked early Wednesday morning at the West 18th Street and Seventh Avenue station on a southbound 1 train platform.

Police have not ruled out St. Hubert's involvement in the killing of 18-year-old Tanaya Copeland, who was fatally stabbed May 30.
