Long Island man arrested after stabbing his parents: cops

A Long Island man was arrested after violently attacking his parents with a knife, cops said Monday.

Myron Mycio stabbed his 62-year-old father in the stomach just before 12:30 p.m. Sunday, while the man was in bed on the ground floor of their Old Bethpage home, Nassau County police said.

“You’re next!” Mycio shouted at his 61-year-old mom — who had run downstairs when she heard her husband screaming in pain — before plunging the knife into her right side, according to police and court documents.

Both parents were taken to an area hospital, where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The violent encounter is believed to have begun with a dispute among the three family members, cops said, though it’s not immediately clear what the argument was about.

Mycio, who has no prior arrests, has been charged with two counts of second-degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, police said.

The 24-year-old man is currently under suicide watch and medical supervision, according to court records, and is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday, sources and court records said.
