Vincent Pinkney charged with murder in fatal stabbing of Columbia student

An ex-con was charged late Friday for an alleged stabbing rampage that left a Columbia University student dead, an Italian tourist wounded and a lawyer reeling from what he described to The Post as a terrifying, silent attack in Central Park.

Vincent Pinkney, 25, was awaiting arraignment on a slew of charges, including murder and attempted murder, for Thursday night’s bloodshed.

The 5-foot-5, 140-pound Manhattan man — a reputed gang member, according to law-enforcement sources — stayed mum as he was walked out of the NYPD’s 26th precinct in upper Manhattan Friday night and escorted to a waiting car by detectives.
