A machete-wielding mad man has been charged with attempted murder after he attacked and injured three members of the NYPD in Brooklyn on Monday, police tell Fox News Digital.
The attack occurred at around 3:30 p.m. when police responded to a report of a 40-year-old emotionally disturbed man inside an East Flatbush apartment on New York Avenue.
Police attempted to take the suspect, Jean Blain, into custody inside the home near Beverley Road when a violent struggle ensued, police say.
