Grandma Violently Stabbed in Unprovoked Elevator Attack

FORDHAM, The Bronx – A 38-year-old man, who was out on parole, has been arrested for the unprovoked stabbing of a 75-year-old woman in a Bronx elevator. The horrifying attack took place on Sunday morning, leaving the victim with multiple stab wounds on her hands and head.

According to officials, Edwin Rios allegedly followed his victim into the elevator of her apartment building on Morris Ave. The motive behind the attack remains unknown, leading authorities to believe it was a random act of violence.

Zenona Ramos, the victim, managed to escape the elevator and went down the hall, desperately seeking help. Exclusive video footage captured Rios calmly leaving the building after the assault.

Ramos is currently in stable condition at St. Barnabas Hospital and is expected to survive. However, she sustained severe injuries, with her face and hands covered in stab wounds. Her hand required 40 stitches to close the cuts.

The traumatized great-grandmother revealed that she pleaded with Rios to spare her life, mentioning her family. Her daughter shared the chilling final words Rios uttered before leaving the scene: “Take care.”

This is not the first time Rios has been linked to a violent crime. In 2012, he was charged with attempted murder for stabbing a 22-year-old woman multiple times in the back in Queens. Rios was released on parole in August last year, with his parole set to end in June.

Rios has now been charged with attempted murder in connection with the Bronx elevator attack. Authorities continue to investigate the incident, hoping to uncover any additional information regarding the motive.

The safety and well-being of residents has been a concern following this shocking incident. The community is left grappling with questions about the justice system’s ability to protect its citizens.
