Pregnant Woman Brutally Stabbed at ATM

San Diego, California – Authorities have identified the suspect involved in the brutal stabbing of a pregnant woman at a drive-thru ATM in San Diego. The man, identified as 27-year-old Cole Klemke of Carmel Valley, was apprehended on Sunday. According to SDPD Lt. Eric Drilling, there appears to be no prior connection between the suspect and the victim, and the motive behind the attack remains unclear at this time.

The incident took place on Saturday morning at a Target shopping center in the Mira Mesa neighborhood. Police reports indicate that the assailant approached the victim and launched a frenzied attack, slashing her multiple times in the upper body. The victim, who is four months pregnant, sustained deep cuts to her neck, left shoulder, and chin. She was promptly transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The identity of the victim has not been disclosed. However, authorities have confirmed that she was released from the hospital the same day as the incident. Meanwhile, Klemke fled the scene after several bystanders rushed to the victim’s aid. The attack, described as unprovoked, was carried out without any prior warnings or demands, and no personal belongings were stolen from the victim.

During the subsequent investigation, detectives from the Northeastern Division managed to obtain photos and video footage of Klemke inside the Target store shortly before the assault occurred. This evidence, along with tips from community members, helped in the identification of the suspect.

The arrest of Cole Klemke provides some relief to the community, as individuals can now be assured that an alleged perpetrator has been taken into custody. The investigation into the motive behind this horrifying attack continues, as the victim and her family try to comprehend the shocking incident that unfolded at a seemingly routine visit to an ATM.
