The Brooklyn neighbor of a man who was allegedly stabbed to death on Thursday morning by his trans daughter says he called out her name during the brutal attack, pleading for her to “call the cops.”
Susie Lew was awakened by the sounds of a struggle down the hall of her Bensonhurst apartment building, according to the New York Post.
“I was woken up,” Lew said. “It sounded like body wrestling going on inside the house, like two people fighting.”
At roughly 6 a.m., Nikki Secondino, the 22-year-old transgender daughter of Carlo Secondino, began pounding on Lew’s door.
“Her bloody fingerprints are all over my door from when she was banging on the door, hoping I would open it,” Lew recalled. “And then when she stopped the banging and I didn’t hear any more movement in the hallway, I slowly opened my door and heard the father yell my name out, ‘Susie, call the cops!'”
The startled neighbor then saw Nikki, an aspiring model, in the hallway making a phone call, during which she claimed she, her father, and her sister, Liana, 19, were stabbed by masked home invaders in an attempted robbery.
Nikki was later arrested for her father’s murder, according to police. Liana was rushed to Maimonides Hospital in critical condition.
Lew described the horror in her neighbor’s apartment.
“He was lying on the kitchen floor, blood all over his chest, completely all saturated and red,” she said of Carlo, who died at the scene. “He was just laying there not moving.”
After her fabricated story to Brooklyn police began to fall apart, Nikki was taken into custody.
Wounds on her hands were treated at NYU Langone Hospital before she was taken to the NYPD’s 62nd Precinct, where she was charged with murder, attempted murder and weapons possession, according to police.
As she was marched out of an NYPD stationhouse, Nikki could be seen “grinning” for the press as she ignored their questions, The Post reports.
It wasn’t the first time that cops were called to the Secondino home.
Sources tell The Post that they visited the apartment several times this year, responding to reports of domestic violence.
I started to read this thinking, "Wow, extremely violent behavior for a woman," then realized it wasn't a woman at all.https://t.co/H6tMOccSEu

On July 14, Liana tore the blinds off the windows of their apartment while fighting with Nikki and was charged with assault and criminal mischief.
The following day, on July 15, say the sources, Carlo was accused of threatening to kill Liana, and on Sept. 19, he allegedly slapped Nikki.
Yadira Gomez, who co-owns Mike’s Diner, where Carlo was employed as a deliveryman, said the fighting between the family members was frequent.
“I know that there was always fights,” she said. “He was always working here all day, but during the day he would always say she’s crazy, she’s got some issues, problems, she doesn’t want to work.”
“She was fighting him yesterday,” Gomez continued, “and he told the other girl, ‘Go to your friend’s house. Don’t stay here,’ because he was worried.”
