NYC: Bronx mom accused of slashing her children’s throats; surrenders to police with blood soaked clothes and razor in hand

A mom is accused of slitting the throats of her two young children with a razor and leaving them bleeding on a Bronx street corner, officials said Tuesday.

After allegedly slashing the necks of her two children — a 2-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy — near the corner of Washington Ave. and Brook Ave. in Morrisania about 8:20 p.m. Saturday, a blood-soaked Shanice Martin walked off, cops said. Her kids are expected to survive.

Panicked pedestrians saw the wounded children and flagged down a passing police cruiser, which rushed them to Lincoln Hospital. The children’s throats were cut “from ear to ear” police sources said.

Meanwhile, Martin, 24, showed up a few minutes after the attack two blocks away at the 42nd Precinct stationhouse, where she handed them the razor she used and surrendered.
