NEW YORK (AP) — A juvenile suspect has been arrested in the fatal stabbing of an 18-year-old Barnard College freshman, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation.
Tessa Majors, of Charlottesville, Virginia, was walking in Manhattan’s Morningside Park just before 7 p.m. Wednesday when she was accosted by an unknown number of people and stabbed during a struggle, police officials said.
Majors was attacked during an armed robbery, according to the president of Barnard College, which is part of the Ivy League’s Columbia University. She then staggered to a nearby street, where she was spotted by a security guard who called 911, Harrison said. She died at a hospital.
Investigators recovered a knife Thursday but were not certain whether it was connected to Majors’ death.
