A grungy Washington state couple broke into a home, shot and stabbed two men and robbed the place — and then trekked 3,000 miles to hide out in New York City, where they were arrested Friday, cops said.
Chloe Fontaine, 24 — who has a lip ring and a Beavis and Butt-Head tattoo on her chest — and beau Mateusz Rudnik, 27, were arrested at his old home in Flushing, Queens, three months after the wild break-in near Olympia.
Rudnik, who often wears a hoodie and has long, messy hair, allegedly ordered the two men to the ground before shooting them on Sept. 11, cops said.
Fontaine stabbed the homeowner in the head and gut and suspects both rummaged through his belongings before fleeing to the East Coast, according to police. The victims survived.
On Friday, the cold-hearted couple was busted at Rudnik’s former pad on 58th Road near 76th Street in Jackson Heights with a loaded handgun that he may have used in the home invasion, authorities said.
They were both acting wild and “whacked out,” prompting authorities to take them to a hospital, a US Marshals source said.
Rudnik may have known the current resident of the apartment, which is what led him there, a police source said.
A woman at Rudnik’s former home in Queens declined to comment beyond saying, “I can’t talk about it.”
Rudnik told his Queens neighbors that his gal pal had cancer. “He said he came from Washington state, where he and his girlfriend owned a farm. He said the girlfriend had cancer and they came here to seek treatment,” said one neighbor who declined to give her name.
The lovebirds have ties to Seattle and Portland — but are likely homeless, cops told The Olympian newspaper.
Rudnik’s nickname is “Polish” because he has an accent. Fontaine also has a Joker tattoo on her arm.
One of the couple’s alleged victims was shot once in the abdomen and stabbed multiple times elsewhere. The other was shot once in the leg, The Olympian reported.
The couple was charged Friday with assault, robbery and unlawful imprisonment.
They were expected to appear in Queens Criminal Court Friday night.
