Woman’s arm severed after alleged domestic dispute in Sunset Park

A 35-year-old man is wanted for allegedly severing the arm of his child’s mother in Sunset Park.

Cops say that at around 12 p.m. on Thursday, June 21 they received a call that 30-year-old Yang Li’s arm had been severed following a domestic dispute with Yong Lu in a home on 55th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.

Cops on scene reported that the woman’s right arm had been severed at the elbow as well as two fingers from her left hand. A cleaver was reportedly used in the assault.

Police sources told this paper that the two have an eight-year-old child, though they are unsure if they are married or living together.

Li was taken to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn before being transferred via an NYPD Harbor Unit to Bellevue Hospital where the police source says doctors might attempt to reattach the victim’s arm. She is listed in critical but stable condition.

Cops are still searching for Lu and is described to be around 5’8″ tall and 160 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
