Long Island Man Accused of Stabbing NJ Woman Before Jumping in Train’s Path

A 44-year-old Centereach man allegedly stabbed his ex-girlfriend to death in New Jersey Thursday and then jumped in front of a Manhattan subway train, authorities said.

Arthur Lomando, who was identified in multiple reports as an ex-NYPD officer, fatally stabbed 48-year-old Suzanne Bardzell in the driveway of her Bergen County home, authorities said. The pair had been estranged, according to reports.

Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said on Twitter that Lomando “threw himself in front of NYC subway” and was taken to Harlem Hospital Center, where he was treated for severe injuries to his head and legs.

The Bergen Record reported that Bardzell was already dead by the time police arrived to the scene.

Lomando confronted Bardzell shortly before 3:30 p.m. as she pulled into her driveway, The Record reported. He allegedly shattered the driver’s side window and stabbed her multiple times with “a very large machete type of knife,” Molinelli said, according to The Record.

The prosecutor was also quoted as saying that Bardzell had recently filed for an order of protection against Lomando.

Bardzell reportedly had two sons from a previous marriage, both in their teens.

The Bergen County Prosecutor’s office did not return a call for comment.
