Woman Sexually Assaulted, Stabbed In Jamaica

NEW YORK (NBC) -- Police said a woman was sexually assaulted and stabbed in Queens early Sunday.

The incident happened at about 6 a.m. in South Jamaica on 159th Street.

The victim was not at the scene when police arrived, but she was captured by surveillance. Police believe she was assaulted and fled the scene. They found blood and undergarments at the scene.

At this point, there has been no police connection between the latest sexual assault and either of the two rape patterns News 4 New York has been covering in the Jamaica and Springfield Gardens neighborhoods in Queens.

Do the Guardian Angels still do patrols?

Article doesn't specify the exact location (159th Street and where?), but the South Road area is a notorious prostitution area. Maybe it was a "deal" that went bad? Seems unusual that the victim would flee the scene.

What should she have done? Stand there naked and bleeding? If someone assaults you in that way, the last thing you want to do is stick around.
