Video of the aftermath was later posted online, showing the horrifying scene following the attack. The camera shows blood smeared across the beige stones, at the foot of the apartment building gate and on a parked car nearby.

Some witnesses told that they could hear screams from Rodriguez while others saw the graphic scene after the incident. One neighbor told the outlet that the suspect would not stop stabbing Rodriguez and that “her face was all red bloody and disfigured,” according to the FreedomNews. The neighbor also said that although people nearby attempted to intervene, the suspect was able to get away and ran toward an apartment building used for Columbia University student housing, the outlet reported.

Rodriguez was rushed to Harlem Hospital but ultimately succumbed to her injuries, according to the New York Post.
