A 26-year-old man has been arrested in Gretna in connection with the brutal killing of his dad, 49-year-old Christopher Adams.

The suspect was identified as Joseph Adams who was found to have a criminal record. He is being accused of stabbing his father 46 times last Oct. 16 in Cypress Hills according to police on Friday, Nov. 19.

The lifeless body of Christopher Adams was found at about 12:35 p.m. near Van Sinderen and Herkimer streets. His body was placed in a plastic bag and left on a sidewalk.

Joseph Adams was apprehended after a Louisiana police officer pulled him as he was driving his Ford F-150 in the West Bank City at around 10:00 p.m. on Oct. 20.

Gretna police noticed he was a bit nervous and ran a registration check. It was here where they learned that Adams was being sought by the New York Police Department in connection with a homicide investigation.

When police did an initial search of Adams’ truck, recovered was a loaded gun and drug paraphernalia.

The 26-year-old was brought back to Brooklyn where he was extradited. He was arraigned on Friday and charged with murder, concealment of a human corpse, tampering with physical evidence and criminal possession of a weapon.

But as mentioned earlier, this was not the first time that the younger Adams had been arrested.

According to records, the 26-year-old man was also arrested in July 2014 for allegedly raping a woman in Brooklyn. Joseph Adams had allegedly met the unnamed woman a month earlier via an online dating app.

Adams allegedly lured the woman to East 31st Street in Marine Park and invited her out to have pizza. But instead, the 26-year-old ended up dragging the female victim through a driveway and, at knifepoint, forced her to perform oral sex and then attempted to rape her.

The woman suffered cuts to her neck and hands as a result of the incident.

Aside from being convicted of first-degree rape, Adams also had a previous case for illegally carrying a firearm.
