An Asian woman was fatally stabbed while walking her dogs in California in what cops are calling a random attack.
Ke Chieh Meng, 64, was out with her two small pups in Riverside around 7:30 a.m. Saturday when she was stabbed and left on the ground bleeding, KTLA-TV reported.
Officers responding to the scene found her on the ground and transported Meng to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to the station.
Meng’s suspected attacker, Darlene Stephanie Montoya, 23, was identified by police as a transient. She was arrested near the scene and charged in what police described as a “completely random” attack.
“There was nothing to suggest that the victim was attacked due to her ethnicity,” Riverside Police Department spokesman Ryan Railsback told The Post on Sunday.
