A homeless man accused of using a metal rod to bludgeon four other homeless men to death in New York has appeared in court on Sunday.

Prosecutors said he was arrested holding the murder weapon covered with blood and hair, and admitted that he was the person in a video of one of the attacks.

Randy Santos was arraigned on charges of murder and attempted murder for the bloody rampage that happened early on Saturday in Manhattan's Chinatown.

The 24-year-old did not enter a plea and was not granted bail.

A fifth homeless man who was injured in the attacks remained hospitalized in critical condition Sunday.
