New York: New York police searched on Monday for a man suspected of stabbing two children in an elevator, killing a six-year-old boy.

Prince Joshua Avitto died in Sunday evening`s attack at a Brooklyn apartment building. Seven-year-old Mikayla Capers suffered a pierced lung and was hospitalised in critical condition.
Police have not excluded that the suspect, described as a man in his 20s, also fatally stabbed an 18-year-old girl found Friday evening on a street near Sunday`s crime scene.
That victim had been repeatedly struck in the neck, abdomen and back.
