Before 10 p.m. Tuesday night, police in Chelsea apprehended a suspect who fit the description of the hatchet-attacker, law enforcement sources said.

The 37-year-old man was smashing car windows near 19th Street and Seventh Avenue when officers in a 10th Precinct patrol car spotted him, according to the sources.

He was taken to Bellevue Hospital for an evaluation, and as of late Tuesday night had not been charged, sources said.
