Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Stabbed Staten Island woman sought neighbors’ help as her deranged husband set home on fire”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A battered, traumatized Staten Island woman stabbed three times ran for help across her street right before her deranged husband lit her home ablaze, her neighbors said Sunday night.

The woman, 48, survived the ordeal Saturday, and her husband, Rogelio Mendez-Rodriguez, 49, faces arson and assault charges, police sources said.

“She was in shock. She had been battered. She was cut in three places,” said a neighbor, Jack O’Hara, 71, who recounted how Mendez-Rodriguez’s spouse came to his door on Monroe Ave. in St. George around 7:20 p.m. Saturday.

O’Hara said he heard a woman yelling in distress about 20 minutes earlier, but didn’t realize what had happened until Palacios showed up, begging for help.

“She said, ‘Can you help me? Please help me! Please help me!’” O’Hara said. He called for an ambulance, as his wife, Annie, 66, tended to the woman’s wounds.
