2008_12_scharles.jpgA 27-year-old Air Force recruiter was stabbed outside her office on 125th Street and Lenox Avenue in Manhattan yesterday around 12:30 p.m. The Post reports that Staff Sgt. Sara Charles (pictured) was "walking from the recruiting center on 125th Street...when she was approached by Lashawn Linton, 28." Apparently Linton—who had "just lefther therapist's office"—"didn't like the way Charles looked at her and the two began to exchange words," culminating in Linton allegedly "whipp[ing] out a knife and plung[ing] it into the eight-year veteran's chest, stomach and leg." A vendor, Aboubacar Lah, who saw Charles running and then tried to shield her from Linton was also slashed when he grabbed the knife. Lah then chased Linton until "uniformed cops...grabbed them both," according to the Daily News. Charles is currently in critical but stable condition while Linton was charged with attempted murder.
