April 7, 2022
BROOKLYN, New York—A 70-year-old woman was stalked and stabbed in the back while walking home in Brooklyn.
Ame Lin Mei, 70, is recovering after being stabbed last week just a block or so from her home in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, reports ABC7.
“I’m afraid to go out tonight,” she said. “If that person isn’t caught, he could do it again,” she told ABC7.
Surveillance footage shows the person the police are looking for. Mei says she was walking home from a pharmacy last Wednesday, March 30, when the man walked up behind her and stabbed her in the back.
The suspect didn’t say anything and she hadn’t seen him before.
