    NEW YORK (AP) -- A knife-wielding man stabbed a 10-month-old baby in her stroller, critically injuring her, police said.

    Isabelle Avins was rushed to a hospital where she underwent surgery Wednesday night. She was listed in critical but stable condition, police spokesman Detective Brian Sessa said.


    At the family's request, the hospital on Thursday declined to provide further details.

    The nanny was walking with the baby around 5 p.m. when the man approached them a short distance from the girl's home, Sessa said.

    People are just sick. No matter how many stories I hear, it never fails to amaze me how sick people are.

    A mental patient's knife attack on a 10-month-old girl severed a major artery - and the baby is struggling to survive on a respirator, prosecutors revealed yesterday.
    The grim details about the condition of Isabelle Avins emerged as her alleged assailant was arraigned in his hospital room and, in a bizarre turn of events, denied a psychiatric exam by a judge.

    Bernard Derr, 47, a diagnosed schizophrenic who told investigators he hears "voices in his head," is accused of pouncing on Isabelle on a Washington Heights street and plunging a knife into her stomach.

    The seemingly random attack Wednesday severed the mesenteric artery, a major blood vessel, and her small intestine, and she "cannot breathe without a respirator," prosecutor Nitin Saveur said.

    "The facts in the case are horrific, the evidence against the defendant is overwhelming," Saveur said. "He knew what he was doing and he knew it was wrong."

    But Derr's Legal Aid lawyer, Deborah Wright, said her client is so whacked out that she can't help him prepare a defense.

    Isabelle's parents have been keeping vigil at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, along with the infant's nanny, Parbattie Ramroop, 44, who rushed the baby to the hospital after the Wednesday evening attack.

    Derr, who will remain at Bellevue Hospital for observation, is due in court Tuesday.

    Little Isabelle Avins remained in critical condition yesterday after being stabbed Wednesday.
    The girl's mom, Sarah Avins, returned home from the hospital briefly yesterday, and is "feeling much better now," said neighbor Dario Martinez — one of a steady stream of well wishers who visited the girl's exhausted parents.

    There's been no change to Isabelle's condition, police said

    The Washington Heights man accused of stabbing a 10-month-old baby in her stroller last month told police he plunged a knife into the girl because "I had to kill something," according to court papers released Monday.

    Bernard Derr, 48, who lived in a housing program for the mentally ill, said in a signed statement that he grabbed a knife and set out to kill a baby because his roommates were getting on his nerves and hounding him to clean up.

    "I left the apartment with my knife ... and was actually heading toward the hospital to kill something -- a baby -- and seen the baby in the stroller and stabbed the baby," he said in the statement. "I had to do that to feel better."

    Miracle baby Isabelle Avins - the 10-month-old infant critically injured when a madman stabbed her last month - has a beaming smile on her face as she sits in her stroller enjoying the sunshine yesterday.

    Wearing a bonnet and kicking her tiny feet in the air, the adorable tot, wheeled by the nanny who helped save her life, seems oblivious to the nightmarish ordeal that nearly ended in tragedy

    And Isabelle's overjoyed parents celebrated the Jewish New Year with her last night, giving thanks that their beloved baby is out of the hospital and getting stronger every day. http://www.nypost.com/news/regionalnews/54824.htm

    In a one-page confession, mental patient Bernard Derr, 47, said the two men who shared his Fort Washington Ave. apartment "had been getting on my nerves and been hounding me to clean up, do the dishes, stuff like that.

    "They were just hounding the s--- out of me and trying to 'f--- me' because [they are] homosexual. I said, 'F--- it. I had to kill something,' so I grabbed my knife that I bought ... and went outside and stabbed the baby in the stroller because I had to kill something."

    In a second statement Derr admitted, "I was going to stab them [his roommates] and then decided to stab a baby. I knew it was wrong but I had to feel better."

    It's too bad he didn't just stab himself. Awful, I know, but that baby sure didn't deserve this.

    Mental illness can be so difficult for everyone, those who have it and those who must live with them. Sure wish the drug companies could come up with something better for this problem.

    Then they can hold him in the psych hospital or a psych area of a prison indefinitely. That is where he needs to be.

    They've had it for a long time. Lock them away or a fatal dose of whatever.
