A woman is recovering after she was stabbed by a man at a SEPTA concourse in Center City Tuesday night.
Police said the unidentified man and woman got into a fight at the SEPTA concourse near 15th Street and JFK Boulevard around 7 p.m. The man then stabbed the woman in the leg before fleeing the scene, according to investigators.
“I was just coming off the train and I saw her laying on the ground,” Antonio Garcia, a witness, told NBC10. “All these cops picked her up and there was all this blood.”
NBC10 obtained video of SEPTA police rushing the injured woman to safety after applying a tourniquet to her leg. The officers flagged down a medic unit that happened to be passing by. The woman was taken to the hospital where she is in stable condition.
