A 32-year-old woman was yesterday stabbed to death in a daring attack on North Street in downtown Kingston.

The woman, identified as Kadian Oshane, resident of Penwood Road, Kingston was walking on North Street about 9:00 am when she was attacked by a man who dragged her to a nearby open lot, where he stabbed her several times.

The woman's attacker was immediately set upon by an angry mob, but was rescued by the police.

The Kingston Central police said they suspect that the man may have been the boyfriend of the victim.

"Is one of the wickedest act. The girl was walking along the road when this man just came up to her and start to attack her," said a frightened looking woman, who said she heard the screams of the woman when she was cornered by the man.

"[It was] the screams for murder me hear and when me look me see a man a run away from the area," said another woman, who was part of a small group who stood close to the murder scene.

"The girl no live no life and that is how them treat her; it's sad," said another woman.

Yesterday, as the police carried out investigations into the killing, some members of the public expressed anger that the accused killer was rescued by the police. They said that the police should have allowed them to beat him to death.

"Right now that boy deh should not escape with him life. [Look] how him deal with the girl and want to live; that is not fair," said one man.
