District Attorney Vance has just announced the indictment of 28-year-old Ming Guang Huang for brutally assaulting his 23-year-old wife with a meat cleaver. Huang is being charged with attempted murder in the second degree, kidnapping in the second Degree, and assault in the first degree.

"Domestic violence doesn't just take place inside the home ? it sometimes spills out onto city streets," said D. A. Vance. "I thank the members of the FDNY responsible for stopping the defendant; their courageous act may have saved the victim's life"

He also encouraged victims of domestic violence to contact their Office's hotline for assistance.

According to the filed complaint, Huang was arguing with his wife at approximately 10:30 a.m. on February 24, 2013 on Canal Street in Chinatown where he proceeded to stab his wife with a meat cleaver repeatedly until two NYC firefighters intervened and restrained him. The wife was left bleeding with severe gash wounds, including two that penetrated both her skull and brain, and required serious surgical treatment.

A.D.A. Steven Nuzzi will be the prosecutor for the case with the assistance of A.D.A. Tandy Gray.
