    It unfolded about 7 a.m. Friday at Newark Beth Israel Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, arising from a “domestic dispute” involving two visitors to the hospital’s pediatric intensive care unit, according to a statement posted on social media by the hospital.

    Firdousi Abdul-Hakim, 37, then attacked the hospital workers, who are in stable condition, according to Fritz Fragé, Newark’s public safety director. Abdul-Hakim faces aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes charges.

    Abdul-Hakim was arrested immediately, and no patients or family members were injured, the hospital said.

    The injured nurses and the medical resident were not identified.

    The 655-bed facility is a teaching hospital with more than 800 doctors and 3,200 employees and dates to 1901.
