Push-In Robber Stabs Woman and Steals $500, NYPD Says

MANHATTAN — A woman was stabbed repeatedly when a man pushed his way into her East Village apartment and stole $500 Sunday night, police said.

The 31-year-old woman was home when she heard a knock on the door of her Avenue B apartment, near East 13th Street, about 8:34 p.m., NYPD officials said.

She opened her door a crack, but then the stranger shoved his way in, stabbing her repeatedly in her torso, arms and hands, police said.

The suspect then grabbed $500 and fled, police said. He hadn't been arrested as of Monday afternoon, police said.

The victim was treated at an area hospital for injuries that weren't considered life threatening, police said.

He's about 18, 5 feet 10 inches and 160 pounds, police said. He was last seen in blue jeans and a red shirt, police said.
