Peter Braunstein, 42, wanted for questioning in Halloween night sexual attack on a woman in her Manhattan apartment posing as a city firefighter was captured Friday at the Peter_braunsteinUniversity of Memphis in Tennessee.

Police said fashion writer Peter Braunstein, 42, was spotted on the University of Memphis campus by a woman who recognized him from news reports about his fugitive status. She called campus police, who caught up with Braunstein, according to New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne.

“He said, ‘I’m the person you’re looking for,’ and he stabbed himself three times in the neck,” Browne said.

Braunstein was hospitalized in critical condition. Seeing the acts that this man is allegedly responsible for, maybe he was just doing everyone a favor.

New York police had been hunting since early November for the freelance journalist, once a writer for Women’s Wear Daily. Police want to question Braunstein about the attack on a woman by a man who bluffed his way into her apartment after setting two small fires and pounding on her door while dressed in full fire gear.

He bound the woman and molested her for more than 13 hours, police said.

He has not been charged in the attack.

Investigators said they believe Braunstein was obsessed with the victim.

Lancaster District Attorney Don Totaro also added a firearms violation and sexual assault charge against 18-year-old David Ludwig on Friday.

Ludwig’s statements appear to have cleared Kara Beth Borden of any involvement or knowledge of the crime against her parents.

Totaro said Ludwig’s statements have exonerated Kara Beth Borden, saying she did not have any role in planning or carrying out the shooting deaths of her parents Michael and Cathryn inside their Lititz home on Nov. 14. “There was no plan or no agreement to harm her parents in any way,” Totaro said.

Totaro said the death penalty is justified because the killing occurred while perpetrating a felony, the firearms charge; that it created a great risk of harm to the couple’s children, who were at home at the time; and that more than one person was killed.

Prosecutors said Ludwig killed the Bordens after an argument over his relationship with their daughter. He was captured the next day following a high-speed chase that ended with him crashing his parents’ car.

Lancaster County District Attorney Don Totaro does not plan to file any charges as Kara Beth Borden was unaware of any plots to murder her parents.

Totaro said Ludwig’s statements have exonerated Kara Beth Borden, and convinced investigators that she did not have any role in planning or carrying out the shooting deaths of her parents Michael and Cathryn inside their Lititz home on Nov. 14. Borden

“I don’t believe her parents were aware. Her friends out in California were aware that she was meeting somebody. From when they first met, we don’t think she knew how old he was,” Deveau said.

A warrant has been issued for Iannazzi’s arrest for unspecified crimes in California. Anyone who has seen the couple is asked to call Watertown police.
