Suspect in Deadly Midtown Stabbing Turns Himself in

"He picked NY because it's the media capital of the world and he wanted to make a statement", Aubrey told reporters during an unrelated press conference on Wednesday.

The person of interest is described as a man with blonde hair; last seen wearing a black coat, brown shoes and dark colored trousers. Nor that he surrendered to stop himself from attacking an interracial couple. [The attack was] random and clearly racially motivated. "He knew what he was doing coming up here", NYPD Assistant Chief William Aubrey said at a news conference Wednesday. "For well over ten years".

Police said the victim had engaged in a confrontation with another man, seen on surveillance video released by police, near the corner of West 36th Street and Ninth Avenue.

He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he later died, authorities said.

Surveillance video obtained by detectives shows him walking closely behind several black men, nearly as if he was stalking them, investigators said. "There happened to be no one else around". He was staying at a hotel in Midtown and proceeded to wander the city.

Jackson, who was arrested on suspicion of murder, told police he'd harbored feelings of hatred toward black men for at least 10 years, authorities said.

A white man from Baltimore bent on making a racist attack took a bus to New York City, the "media capital of the world", randomly picked out a black man who was collecting bottles on the street and fatally wounded him with a sword, police said Wednesday.

NYPD detectives are looking at his social media accounts and speaking to Jackson's family members and associates in Maryland as they continue to investigate.

According to Aubrey, Jackson made a decision to turn himself in after seeing media reports about himself. Caughman described himself as a "can and bottle recycler, autograph collecter in NY city" on social media.

Aubrey said Wednesday that the NYPD is "working with" the Manhattan DA's office to upgrade the charge to a hate crime.
