This is the type of relationship your mother always told you to stay away from…
A 22 year old woman was found by cops over the weekend sobbing uncontrollably as she lay over her boyfriend who she had repeatedly stabbed a number of times in their Manhattan abode before dragging him down the street. At the time when the police arrived the Russian emigre, Yekaterina Pusepa insisted that her boyfriend had self inflicted the wounds only to recant her story later that evening whilst being questioned. It had also been reported that her 22 year old boyfriend, Alec Katsnelson had also tried a number of times to have his live in girlfriend evicted with little success, with police having to come a number of times to settle domestic flurries in the household.
nypost: She was sobbing furiously — but last night it turned out she was crying crocodile tears as cops charged her with stabbing her beau in a fit of rage inside their Gold Street apartment.
Pusepa, 22, was hauled off in handcuffs from the grisly scene around 3:30 a.m. yesterday. Hours later she was hit with charges of attempted murder and assault in the second degree.
Hmm. Crying uncontrollably. Crocodile tears? Does this sound like a princess who just couldn’t get her way? Couldn’t get her boyfriend to understand the thing that she was or wanted to be? Couldn’t get her boyfriend to see past the errors of his ways? Or was this just a situation of two young adolescents too wrapped up in each other to see beyond the emotional quagmire that united them in the first place?
She told cops she grabbed a kitchen knife during a heated argument with Alec Katsnelson — but that he took it from her hand and plunged it into his own chest.
But sources said she changed her story under questioning. And after Katsnelson, 22, got out of surgery at Bellevue Hospital yesterday he said she stabbed him with one of two knives that cops found.
So much for turbulent love affairs.
And there’s this:
“I hear them arguing a lot, yelling at each other,” a neighbor said. “But I never saw them fighting.”
Their fighting escalated early yesterday.
“I heard a lot of yelling, two people screaming,” said a 26-year-old student who lives in the building. “A lot of the screaming was coming from a woman.”
The argument was so intense, another neighbor was heard yelling, “You guys need to shut up!”
“She was screaming more and louder,” the neighbor said. “It was anger and hostility like someone making threats. You could tell there was a fight.”
Yes the memories are all flooding back, that one boyfriend, girlfriend who drove you to madness but whom you couldn’t live apart from, such are of course the inconsistencies of love…
Katsnelson’s mother, Lena Katsnelson, told The Post that her son was in the process of getting a restraining order against Pusepa. She described her as a violent girl who’s attacked the Duane Reade worker in the past.
“He’s in love with her,” Lena Katsnelson said. “I tell him this is the wrong relationship but he wouldn’t listen.”
How could he listen, she was a vixen and he was game for the vixen. Until one day he wasn’t and that’s maybe when it all went undone….
This is not Pusepa’s first brush with the law.
In 2009, she was busted in California for driving under the influence on Christmas Day.
Such are the bitter tears of one young lady trying to make sense of the disastrous choices she has made….never mind the young man who managed to live through it.
