The police did not take immediate action, because the scene was outside of their jurisdiction, the New York Post reported, citing a claim on the basis of the NYPD to review.

Jerry Brown, 34, has been charged with murder and attempted murder after allegedly chopping up his girlfriend, Angela Valle (right) and her pregnant girlfriend Savannah Rivera, with an axe in an apartment building in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday (Facebook)

Police found Rivera partially beheaded with her fingers, severed in the horrific scene. Valle called an Uber to take her to the hospital after the attack left cuts on her head, the chest, the arms, the belly and throat, according to the New York Post. The Uber driver then called 911 and Valle, 21, height medics for the loss of the consciousness that her boyfriend was the attacker.

Brown said to suffer from mental health problems and told PIX 11 News before they are arrested that he is schizophrenic, manic depressive and paranoid. He said that he tried to get medication from a hospital, and that he did not know of the attack. When he heard that his girlfriend was fighting for her life, he began to cry while speaking with journalists on the phone.

Brown reportedly bought the ax on a Florama Hardware store, about two weeks ago, employees said. She added that he asked the 39-year-old worker Udi Amrussi if he could sharpen the ax for him, but the man refused.
