63-year-old Oklahoma City woman recovering after being stabbed during violent robbery
OKLAHOMA CITY – A 63-year-old woman is recovering after she was stabbed during a violent robbery.
Around 12:20 p.m., the 63-year-old woman went to her home in the 8100 block of S.W. 38th to have lunch.
The woman told police she ate lunch in her kitchen and didn’t notice anything suspicious.
About 30 minutes later, the woman had just got back in her car to leave for work when she saw an unknown man walk out of her house.
The woman told police she got out of her car and asked the young man what he was doing in her house.
That is when the suspect attacked the 63-year-old woman, a police report states.
The suspect stabbed the woman twice, one in the cheek and once in the left upper chest.
Hospital staff later said chest wound barely missed a major artery.
After stabbing the woman multiple times, the victim told police the man ran back into her house and she followed.
Once they were inside her house, the man tried to attack the woman again.
When she fell down, the suspect ran outside.
The woman told police she saw the man get into her car and drive away with her purse and cell phone.
A neighbor saw the bleeding woman chasing after the car and called police.
The woman was rushed to the hospital to be treated for her wounds.
Investigators were able to locate the woman’s stolen vehicle as well as her purse.
Early Tuesday morning, police arrested the suspect, a 16-year-old male, as well as 19-year-old Tyreasha Johnson, who police say received the stolen property.
Johnson is facing charges for receiving/concealing stolen property.
The 16-year-old suspect, who police say has a lengthy felony record, is facing charges of first-degree robbery, burglary, and assault with a deadly weapon.
KFOR is not identifying the teen suspect because he is a juvenile.
