NYPD Saves Woman Being Stabbed By Boyfriend
A Bronx woman who was being beaten and about to be knifed by her abusive boyfriend desperately pounded on a neighbor’s door and screamed for other residents’ help Sunday — only to be turned away.
The badly injured woman was only saved when cops shot her attacker as he stabbed her in front of them and refused to put down his knife, police and witnesses said.
“Help me! Please help me!’’ the 32-year-old victim screamed, according to neighbor Jaime Vittini, 29, who lives across from the troubled couple’s third-floor apartment on Sedgwick Avenue in Fordham Manor.
