New York woman haunted home after night out and stabbed to death in her Chinatown apartment: Suspect caught on video moments before attack
A woman was killed after she was stabbed to death in her New York apartment.
It happened early Sunday morning in an apartment building in Chinatown.
CCTV footage shows the 35-year-old woman entering her Christie Street home.
CCTV footage seen by the New York Post shows the suspect entering after the victim as she opens the front door and walks out into the hallway.
The 35-year-old woman was seen on video footage walking to her home at 111 Chrystie Street early Sunday morning.
A few minutes later, at 4:30 am, piercing screams were heard from the victim’s apartment as the woman was brutally stabbed to death.
The woman, who has not yet been identified, was found in the bathroom “bleeding from multiple wounds on her body.”
FDNY medics pronounced the victim dead at 5:55 am.
Her alleged killer, 25-year-old Assamad Nash, was still in the apartment and was found covered in blood hiding under a bed.
Nash is known to police as a homeless career criminal who escaped custody several times.
The police quickly arrived on the scene and could even hear the victim’s screams from their home. The police found a bloody knife in the apartment.
“We have cameras on every floor and here in front of the entrance,” the Post building owner said.
She got out of the taxi right here and he followed her. He grabbed the front door just before it closed. He followed her all the way to the top, falling behind, staying one floor behind her until the sixth floor. Then he waited until her door was almost closed and entered.
New York Gov. Katie Hochul tweeted about the senseless stabbings that led to the death of a 35-year-old woman.
“So much blood. My wife said I should call someone to clean up all the blood, but I’m going to clean it up myself. This is the least I can do for this poor girl,” the owner of the building said.
“She’s from New Jersey, she’s been living here for less than a year,” the owner of the building told The Post. “Such a sweet girl.
“I mourn this tragic and heartbreaking death,” New York Governor Kathy Hochul tweeted.
“In recent months, we have seen too many acts of violence against AAPI New Yorkers. We must make sure that every community in our state is safe.
“I join New Yorkers as they stand together to support our AAPI friends and neighbors.”
