NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Authorities said a woman was stabbed multiple times in Northwest Miami-Dade.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units responded to the scene located near Northwest 115th Street and 22nd Avenue just after 6:30 a.m., Thursday.
Victim Angelene Pierre was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital in stable condition.
Detectives said Pierre knew her alleged attacker, Keschener Destin.
At this time, police do not believe the stabbing was a domestic violence incident.
Junior Jeanlouis, a neighbor of Pierre, said Pierre is a mom of two kids. He heard a dog barking and then saw Pierre outside screaming.
“Traumatized, man. What if that was your own mom?” said Jeanlouis.
Jeanlouis described Pierre as a strong woman after she remained standing while he, among other neighbors, attempted to apply pressure to the wounds.
“We tried to help. We helped, we grabbed clothes, grabbed some cloth to try help her not bleed as much until the ambulance got here,” said Jeanlouis.
Neighbor Yara Torres also ran to help Pierre after hearing her screams.
“All you see is a lady asking for help, begging for help because she felt that she was going to die,” said Torres. “My hands were shaking. My nerves were crazy.”
Torres said she remembered seeing injuries on Pierre’s neck, arms and stomach.
“So she put something around her, and then she tied her so the bleeding would stop,” said Torres. “Whoever did this, I hope he gets put up, locked away.”
Pierre is now recovering at the hospital.
“It was not easy, and I know it was definitely not easy for her son,” said Torres. “I’m just glad she’s OK. Glad she’s alive.”
Torres and her boyfriend temporarily took care of Pierre’s children after the stabbing. The children are now with family.
