A Haitian man awaiting a deportation hearing was arrested for stabbing two of his fellow countrymen to death during a rampage at an apartment complex in New York this week, according to reports.

The horrifying incident unfolded in Middletown on Monday, but details about the suspect’s immigration status came to light later in the week.

Middletown police officers arrived at Eastview Condominiums and found two victims suffering from stab wounds, one of whom was already deceased while the other died a short time later at a local hospital.

They were both reportedly Haitian citizens whose immigration statuses are unclear, and very little additional information about them has been released.

“It was one of the most brutal murders that some law enforcement is reporting to us that they’ve seen,” Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus told News 12.

“We don’t have any history, no background on these individuals. Who is monitoring them? That’s the problem.”

Officers located 30-year-old Kenol Baptiste in a nearby wooded area and took him into custody.

He was charged with second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter, and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Authorities believe Baptiste was an acquaintance and roommate of the victims, but it is unclear what led to the massacre.

“Middletown murder suspect, Kenol Baptiste, accused of fatally stabbing his roommates Monday has been determined to be a Haitian national who was in the U.S. for eight months; had a pending deportation hearing,” News 12 reporter Blaise Gomez revealed on Wednesday, citing Executive Neuhaus.

Baptiste was scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
