In Brooklyn yesterday, a morning commute turned harrowing when a woman was repeatedly stabbed by a pair blockading her apartment entrance as she was trying to depart for work.
The local woman, aged 32, was attempting to exit her residential building situated near the junction of Franklin Ave. and Bergen St. in Crown Heights. It was approximately 8 a.m. on Friday when her path was obstructed by a man and woman, both reportedly in their 30s. The resident’s request for them to clear the way escalated into a dispute, according to law enforcement.
The disagreement tragically escalated into violence, as the duo alternated in assaulting their victim, stabbing her “numerous times” across her body, police recounted. The Daily News reported that paramedics rushed the injured woman to New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, where she is now stable.
Post-incident, the assailants vanished from the scene, last noted heading north on Franklin Ave. The authorities have since retrieved security camera footage of the suspects, which was made public today.
To date, no arrests have been made. Those with any information are urged to dial 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or, for Spanish speakers, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). Additionally, tips can be submitted online at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org or via text to 274637 (CRIMES), followed by TIP577. All communications will be kept in strict confidence.
This shocking incident follows a week of similar violence in Brooklyn. A Hispanic man was killed in a stabbing, believed to have been instigated by a childhood friend, during an altercation in a local bodega. A Hispanic woman also lost her life, reportedly stabbed by her ex-partner, who subsequently committed suicide on a public street in the early morning hours.
