VIDEO: College student, 18, beaten and stabbed to death in savage mugging near NYC park
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by DailyMail:
An 18-year-old college student was stabbed to death on Wednesday afternoon in a New York City park, allegedly by a group of unidentified young men who mugged her then left her for dead.
Tessa Majors, a freshman at Barnard College who was from Charlottesville, Virginia, was walking down a flight of steps into Morningside Park on West 116th Street on Wednesday when the young men approached her.
The article goes on to state the following:
According to police sources, they demanded money from her and stabbed her multiple times in the stomach before fleeing.
According to multiple reports, Majors was able to crawl to a nearby security guard booth, but the guard was away on his rounds. He found her unconscious when he returned and called 911. She was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.
Reportedly, a 16-year-old boy, who is a known robbery suspect and matched the description one witness gave, was taken into custody. The Daily Mail reported that there “was also a trail of blood leading into his apartment which police sources described as a ‘hub of criminal activity’.” A group of teens are also being questioned, the report states.
Majors’s parents are reportedly traveling from their home in Virginia to New York. Her grandmother reportedly said in an interview, “I guess being from a smaller town she was too naive to think about walking alone in New York City. She just shouldn’t have been there.”
