Police say a wheelchair-bound man, paralyzed from the waist down, was beaten and stabbed by his landlady in the Parkchester section of the Bronx. The man was attacked inside the apartment on Zerega Avenue sometime after 8:30 p.m. Monday, the apparent result of an escalating landlord-tenant dispute.

It was a bloody and grisly scene inside the apartment, where authorities say the victim was stabbed multiple times.

He was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center, where he was in serious but stable condition.

The alleged attacker was taken into custody, but no charges were immediately filed.

She sustained minor injuries, which detectives believe may have been self inflicted.
