A Guyanese woman was on Monday fatally stabbed by her estranged husband whom she had cut ties with some two months ago.
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.
