An Asian woman was fatally stabbed while walking her dogs in California in what cops call an accidental attack.
Ke Chieh Meng, 64, came out with her two little ones in Riverside around 7:30 a.m. Saturday when she was stabbed and left on the ground bleeding, KTLA-TV reported.
Officers responding to the scene found her on the ground and transported Mann to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to the station.
The suspected Man attacker, 23-year-old Darlene Stephanie Montoya, was identified by police as a transitional. She was arrested near the scene and charged by police, described as a “completely accidental” attack.
“There was no indication that the victim had been attacked because of her ethnicity,”
“We will try to investigate [the suspect’s] a history of drug abuse and its history of mental health, “Railsback said, adding that cops” still don’t close the door on anything. “
Montoya was booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center on suspicion of murder and was also charged with being under the influence of a controlled substance and was ordered to be detained without bail, CNN reported.
Montoya was last arrested on March 30 and charged with assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly attacked a woman with a skateboard near a local mall, but was released on bail due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Railsback said the victim in this case was a white woman.
