Disturbed daughter stabbed mother after she refused to recite prayer: police

A Lower East Side daughter stabbed her mother five times after she refused to recite the Santeria religious prayer, cops and sources said Wednesday.

The disturbing attack unfolded around noon Tuesday in the family’s apartment on Madison Street, according to cops.

The 33-year-old woman, who was identified as Jackeline Cordero, grabbed a butcher knife from the kitchen and threatened to kill her 60-year-old mother if she didn’t say the Afro Cuban prayer, police and sources said.

She refused, so she stabbed her once in the stomach, and then four more times, according to police.

The wounded mother was eventually able to escape and call 911 from a neighbor’s apartment, police said.

Cordero was taken into custody on the roof of the building, charged with assault and taken to Bellevue Hospital, according to police.

Jackeline Cordero’s mother is removed from the scene.

The mother was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where she is expected to recover.
