An 88-year-old woman fell from a first-floor window in the Bronx on Friday — as a man in the apartment slashed another 61-year-old lady there and stabbed himself, according to cops and law-enforcement sources.

The 38-year-old suspect had slashed the younger woman in the neck around 7 a.m. inside the apartment on Clay Avenue near East 175th Street in Morris Heights, police said.

The man and women lived together, cops said, but their exact relationship was unknown.
