22-Year-old Pregnant Bronx Woman Fatally Stabbed by Woman Who Claimed the Unborn Baby Was Hers.

A 22-year-old pregnant Bronx woman was fatally stabbed Friday afternoon – the victim of a possible baby-snatching, according to multiple reports – but her child survived. The unhinged Bronx woman who stabbed an expectant mother then ripped the unborn child out of the dying woman’s womb claimed to police she was trying to “save the baby” after knifing the mother in self defense, police sources said Saturday.NEW YORK (AP) — Investigators on Saturday were trying to make sense of a bloody Bronx crime scene where a pregnant woman was stabbed multiple times in the torso and neck while a newborn girl was found breathing outside.‘When the cops arrived, the perpetrator tried to claim that it was her child that was there, saying that she gave birth at the time of the struggle.’ After first claiming she had just given birth to the blood-soaked baby herself, Ashleigh Wade, 22, later claimed victim Angelikque Sutton attacked he first inside Wade’s home on Monticello Ave. in Wakefield about 2 p.m.

The infant, who survived and was named Genesis after being taken to a nearby hospital, was “surgically removed by the perpetrator,” officials said. A 22-year-old woman — screaming that the baby was hers — was taken into custody and accused of attacking the victim, also 22 and nearly nine months pregnant, officials said. Detectives discovered a knife and placenta in the blood-spattered apartment building when they responded to an emergency call from the victim’s boyfriend, who walked in to discover the scene, authorities said. Police responded to the scene, in the 4400 block of Monticello Avenue, at about 2:23 p.m. local time, following a 911 call about a physical dispute, according to the statement.

New York City Councilman Andy King, who was briefed by investigators about the case, told The Associated Press that the victim had been strangled then stabbed. Sutton’s family declined to talk to reporters Saturday morning as they left Montefiore Medical Center, where the baby, named Genesis, was recovering. In the days before the murder, Wade said she and Sutton socialized at Applebees in Co-op City and even went to an area Toys R’ Us in anticipation of Sutton’s baby.
