Assamad Nash, 25, a long-serving drifter, was charged on Monday with murder and burglary after he fatally stabbed advertising creative Christine Yuna Lee, whom he followed to her apartment after she came home from a party.

Nash has three more open criminal cases, one for assaulting a man in a subway station.

Lee was returning home Sunday morning around 4:30 a.m. from a party at a club when Nash noticed her getting out of a taxi, her landlord Brian Chin said.

Security video captured Nash sneaking into the building behind Lee, who did not notice her stalker.

Nash stepped back as the digital producer walked up the six flights to her apartment, Chin said, climbing one floor down.

According to Chin, he lunged at her when she opened the door of her apartment and entered it.

Neighbors woke up on Sunday morning to Lee’s bloodcurdling cries of “Please help me.” Call 911.”

Christina Yuna Lee, 35, was stabbed to death in her New York City apartment by a “homeless serial criminal”. Assamad Nash, 25, was arrested for murder after she was found dead in the blood-soaked tub of her Chinatown apartment.

Star Fitz, 21, who lives down the hallway, said she immediately called the police, who arrived instantly.

By then, Nash had barricaded himself in the apartment with the mortally wounded Lee, who lay bleeding in the tub while the police were forced to fight their way into the block.

According to the New York Post, they found Nash hiding under the bed.

Nash, a homeless career criminal, was released on bail after several unresolved crimes, including an assault case in September and an arrest for mischief in early January. He was due to appear in court on March 3. According to ABC7, he has been arrested at least seven times since 2015, most recently on January 6, 2022.

Nash has been arrested four times in the past year alone, according to court records available to DailyMail.com. His criminal charge included charges of assault, vandalism, stalking, resisting arrest, attempting and successfully escaping police officers, and selling a travel ticket.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has faced backlash for allowing career criminal Assamad Nash to remain at large after his latest arrest last month.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has faced backlash for allowing career criminal Assamad Nash to remain at large after his latest arrest last month.

Three of those cases remain open, and he has appeared in court on numerous occasions. He was scheduled to appear before a judge again on March 9 on charges of assault, harassment and intentional damage to property.

“All of this could have been avoided,” Lee’s homeowner Brian Chin told reporters Sunday night. “This guy should never have been on the street. And it is District Attorney Alvin Bragg who is playing politics with people’s lives, and the Asian community has suffered. To have the District Attorney who won these heinous crimes by his side. And he doesn’t even bother to show up. It’s shameful.

It’s not clear if Nash knew Lee, but according to the New York Daily News, investigators found security video showing the suspect following Lee into her building after she was given a ride by a taxi.

Chinatown residents say the area is under stress after a brutal accidental killing and have urged politicians to do something about the homelessness and mental health crisis the city is suffering from.

Lee’s apartment at 111 Christie Street is a block from the Bowery, famous for its food pantries and homeless shelters.

Sarah Roosevelt Park, across the street from her home, was a hotbed of street crime, homelessness, and outdoor drug use.
