KILLER WAS ARRESTED ON THIS DAY IN 1977

LEAD SON OF SAM

Police officials surround David Berkowitz, 24, of Yonkers outside Brooklyn’s 84th Precinct after his arrest as the "Son of Sam" killer.


On August 10, 1977, 24-year-old postal employee David Berkowitz is arrested
and charged with being the “Son of Sam,” the serial killer who terrorized
New
York City
for more than a year, killing six young people and wounding seven
others with a .44-caliber revolver. Because Berkowitz generally targeted
attractive young women with long brown hair, hundreds of young women
had their hair cut short and dyed blonde during the time he terrorized the
city. Thousands more simply stayed home at night.

After his arrest, Berkowitz claimed that demons and a black Labrador
retriever owned by a neighbor named Sam had ordered him to commit
the killings.
