New York City Police: 7-year-old Kid in Severe Condition After Being Stabbed by Her Grandma

On Tuesday, a 7-year-old child in the Bronx was stabbed many times in the neck, stomach, and back, reportedly by her own grandma, according to cops and police sources.

At approximately 8 a.m., a youngster was stabbed at 1317 Clinton Ave. in Morrisania with an unidentified instrument, police said.

According to the police, she was transferred in critical condition to Lincoln Hospital, where she underwent surgery. On Monday night, police reported that the girl’s condition had improved to stable.

Her grandma, Maritza Yauger, 65, was transferred to another facility for psychiatric examination.

According to The Post, police sources said she was charged with attempted murder, manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment, and endangering the welfare of a child.

Speculation about a possible reason is fruitless.

She was covered in blood from head to toe, as one witness put it, according to Ana Martinez, a neighbor who spoke to The Post. She was covered with blood, beginning at the face and going all the way to the floor. Her whole face was covered.

I witnessed the officer hurriedly placing a bloodied girl into a police cruiser. They quickly got her into an ambulance when she collapsed. The cop just rushed her,” Martinez, a 37-year-old mother of three, recalled.

Martinez claims to have seen the young girl and her grandmother out in the neighborhood with the family dog.

It’s dreadful, she said.

Another neighbor, David Roamba, 57, said he saw the grandmother being taken away in an ambulance.

She definitely appeared to be ill. She was walking with difficulty. Someone was holding her hand,” he said.

Derrike Graham, who lives across the street, said the grandma was silent as she was led away.

“She looked like she knew she did something wrong. She didn’t say anything. She has this look like ‘yeah, I know what I did,’” Graham, 52, told The Post.

The victim’s uncle, Damian Llauger, told The Post Tuesday evening his niece was undergoing her second surgery.

He commended the “quick-thinking” cop who responded to the call because he rushed her to the hospital on his own instead of waiting for an ambulance.

“He took the matters into his own hands,” Llauger said. “He just went to the hospital and carried the baby in his arms. The NYPD saved her, a quick-thinking cop.”

Llauger, who was standing outside the grandmother’s home, said the little girl was visiting her grandparent when the frightening incident happened.

“The devil comes into your house at any time,” he said, referencing the grandmother.

“Just pray for her,” Llauger said of the young victim who loves the piano, adding the girl’s parents are “destroyed.”
