LONGMONT, Colo. (KDVR) - A 26-year-old woman is recovering after she was stabbed while answering a Craigslist ad for baby clothes.

Around 2:40 p.m. on Wednesday, officers were called to a home on a reported stabbing.

The victim, who was 7 months pregnant at the time of the attack, called 911 for help.

On the phone, she barely sounded conscious.

“She cut me. … I’m pregnant,” the victim could be heard telling the dispatcher.

The victim told the dispatcher that she was stabbed with a knife and broken glass.

“Officers arrived on scene and could hear a female calling for help inside the home. Officers entered the home and located a female who had been beaten and stabbed in the stomach,” Longmont police said.

Police said the 34-year-old suspect, Dynel Catrece Lane, went to a hospital with the baby, claiming she had a miscarriage.

The baby did not survive.

Lane's stepfather told KDVR that she told family she was pregnant. On Wednesday, she told them she "lost the baby."

Lane was arrested on a number of felony charges, including attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and child abuse knowingly/reckless resulting in death.
