FLATBUSH, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A woman is in custody after a man's body parts were found in a refrigerator inside an apartment in Brooklyn Monday.

Police responded to a wellness check for 2069 Nostrand Ave. in Flatbush just after 7 p.m.

Eyewitness News was told a man's dismembered body parts were found in a taped up freezer inside the third-floor apartment. A Crimestoppers tip led police to the apartment.

The shocking scene left some residents horrified and scared.

"That's something you see in Colorado or Wyoming. Not here in Brooklyn, New York," one neighbor said.

The woman who was in the apartment was taken into custody.

No charges have been filed so far as police try to figure out what happened.

There are security cameras on the building, but it's not clear if they work.

The city's Medical Examiner will investigate the cause of death.

The investigation is ongoing.
