Hannah Donald, 47, was rushed to the hospital with multiple stab wounds to her chest, arm and neck just before 18:00h, following an argument with her husband at her E 17 Street near Dorchester Rd, Brooklyn home.

According to NY Daily News, the woman’s 58-year-old husband was taken into custody at the Cortelyou Road Q train station at about 21:30h.

The woman’s friend, Izafet Colok, 57, who works at a nearby laundromat, said Donald’s husband harassed her after she kicked him out.

“She tell me, ‘he’s coming to bother me.’ I told her just change the locks. Every time I tell her,” Colok is quoted as saying by the NY Daily News. “She’s a quiet lady, so nice. She always help everybody,” he added.

“He’s drinking, he’s not nice, he comes to my laundry and complains. I know he’s like a bum.”

Charges were pending against the estranged husband early Tuesday.
