DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN, Brooklyn (WABC) — Police are looking for a woman who is accused of stabbing a mother several times in Downtown Brooklyn.
Officials say it happened Monday afternoon on the corner of Jay and Tillary streets.
The 34-year-old victim was pushing a stroller with her 3-year-old daughter inside, when the suspect began arguing with her, police said.
Police say as the suspect walked past the victim, she yelled, “what you looking at? I’ll stab your daughter!”
The victim moved to stand between the woman and the stroller. Authorities say the woman pulled a knife and stabbed the victim in the chest and multiple times in both legs.
The suspect was allegedly wearing a blonde wig during the altercation. She ran from the scene northbound on Jay Street.
The victim continued onto the subway, entering at the Jay Street station, and rode the E train with her daughter all the way to Queens, where she was met by police at the Jamaica Center – Parsons/Archer Station.
Authorities say the victim was taken to the hospital in stable condition. The child was not harmed.
A tip directed police officers to a person of interest, who is now being questioned at the 84th Precinct in Downtown Brooklyn.
