Po­lice mum on probe of baby’s stab­bing death

The Washington Times Daily - - Metro -

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the killing of a baby stabbed while in his mother’s womb is con­tin­u­ing, said D.C. po­lice, who de­clined to pro­vide de­tails on any pos­si­ble sus­pects in the at­tack.

The preg­nant woman was at­tacked in the mid­dle of the night in­side her South­east apart­ment and stabbed in the stom­ach on March 22. She was taken to a hospi­tal, where the child was de­liv­ered.

The death of the child, whom she named Kuron Rashad Hunt, was ruled a homi­cide last week, ac­cord­ing to the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice Depart­ment.

The boy died from a stab wound to his torso, po­lice said.

Neigh­bors who lived in apart­ments in the 4200 block of Ninth Street South­east were awak­ened by the woman’s screams the night she was at­tacked. They said she told them that a man wear­ing a black hooded sweat­shirt came into her apart­ment and stabbed her once in the stom­ach but fled af­ter she be­gan to scream.

Po­lice said there were no signs of forced en­try. Res­i­dents said the front door to the apart­ment build­ing is al­ways locked at night.
