Pregnant Woman Fatally Stabbed In Venice
A pregnant woman was fatally stabbed during a fight Monday night in Venice, and authorities are still searching for the woman's attackers.The stabbing occurred at about 9:30 p.m. near Windward and Pacific avenues, not far from the Boardwalk. Police say the victim, identified as Jasmine Preciado, had been arguing with two other women and a man when the stabbing occurred, City News Service reports. When officers responded, they found Preciado being held by a bystander who had witnessed the fight. Preciado was rushed to a hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.
Preciado's family members told NBC4 that Preciado was 24 years old. They added that she was three months pregnant at the time of her death, and that she has left behind a 3-year-old daughter.
A woman who identified herself as Preciado's cousin addressed Preciado's attackers, saying, "Did you know that by hurting Jasmine, you hurt her daughter?"
