A fatally stabbed 35-year-old woman in San Francisco used her dying breaths to identify her alleged attacker, according to a report.
Latanette McDaniel was walking with a rolling suitcase around 11 p.m. in the Portero Hill neighborhood when the assailant ran up behind her and stabbed her in the back, SF Gate reported.
McDaniel then banged on a bus’ window and screamed for help as her attacker fled the scene, the report said.
When officers arrived, McDaniel was collapsed on the ground and told officers, “I’m going to die,” the outlet reported.
She told cops that “Vernisha” injured her and that her assailant was on “Portero Hill.”
“Vernisha did it,” she repeatedly said, according to the report.
She was brought with a punctured lung to the hospital, where she died shortly after, officials said.
Meanwhile, cops tracked down 25-year-old Vernisha Mandigo near the scene of the Dec. 14 attack.
Inside the woman’s purse, there were two pairs of scissors, one of which appeared to be broken, police said.
She was taken into custody and allegedly admitted to fatally stabbing McDaniel, the report said.
It’s unclear whether Mandigo had a relationship with the victim.
Mandigo is being held without bail on murder charges in the slashing, SFGate reported. She’s set to return Monday to court, where she could enter a plea.
