Woman Attacked, Stabbed Outside Her South Charlotte Apartment

From http://www.wsoctv.com by Trish Williford, May 20, 2015

A 29-year-old woman is frightened but thankful to be alive after coming face to face with two men as she walked out of her apartment on Farmhurst Drive Tuesday morning, May 19, 2015.

The woman, who does not want to be identified, said she walked out of her apartment at about 9:15 a.m., when she encountered two men sitting on the steps.

As she began to walk down them, the men immediately stood up.

She says one of them actually greeted her.

“He just said something like, ‘Hi,’ or something, and when I said, ‘Hi,’ and tried to pass between them, that’s when one of them pulled my purse, and he said, ‘Give me your purse,’” she said.

But the woman refused to let it go.

“I was fighting for my purse then he hit me, and I hit him back, and I yelled and nobody heard me,” she said.

The man grabbed the purse and ran off.

The woman ran back up the steps and tried to quickly get inside her apartment. It was then she noticed she was hurt.

Her stomach was bleeding.

The woman said she didn’t realize that as the attacker grabbed her purse, he had also stabbed her with an ice pick.

A neighbor heard the commotion and called for help.

The victim is staying with family Wednesday night.

She said the men were in their early 20s and one of them had a mark or some kind of tattoo on his neck.

She said she recognized one of them from her neighborhood.
