Woman, 35, fatally stabbed after being followed into her NYC apartment

Link

A New York City woman was stabbed to death in her Chinatown home Sunday by a man who allegedly followed her into the building and up six flights of stairs to her apartment, police and her landlord said.

Christina Yuna Lee had just returned home from a Saturday night out when she was followed into her building by her alleged assailant and up to her apartment, her landlord, Brian Chin, said to NBC New York.

“She opened the door and he just slipped in right behind her. She never even knew he was there,” Chin said. “She walked up six flights of stairs and this man mercilessly stalked her.”

Police responded to a 911 call just before 4:30 a.m. about a dispute on the 100 block of Chrystie Street and found “a barricaded individual” inside the apartment, according to the New York City Police Department.

Officers were initially unable to enter the unit. Emergency Service Unit officers responded and were able to enter, where authorities found Lee, 35, in the bathroom, police said.

An NYPD spokesperson told NBC News that she was stabbed. She was pronounced dead on the scene.

The suspect was taken into custody, police said Sunday. On Monday, police announced that Assamad Nash, 25, was arrested and charged with murder and burglary in connection to Lee’s death.

Police also confirmed the man was seen following Lee into her building behind her. The New York Post obtained video footage showing the alleged suspect following Lee in.
