2 Women attacked by unknown assailant with a knife at Pittsburgh bus stop

One woman died on Thursday in a double stabbing in Pittsburgh.

Officials say a woman was talking to a police officer at a bus stop when someone behind the officer attacked her and another woman with a knife.

The officer then apprehended the suspect. The officer then began providing aid to the women.

Both victims were taken to a hospital.

One died and the other is still being treated for her injuries.

Officials say they still don’t have a motive for what appears to be a random stabbing.

Police officials say the woman who survived the attack may have been wearing a hijab, a head covering worn in public by some Muslim women.
