SAN ANTONIO, Texas — A pregnant women who was stabbed in the abdomen while on a walk is recovering at University Hospital.

Police told KSAT that 30-year-old Dana Kimbro, who is eight months pregnant, was attacked by a knife-wielding man while walking in the 400 block of SW Military Drive around midnight.

Kimbro is expected to be OK and police investigators said they don’t believe the baby was harmed.

They said Kimbro was approached by a 27-year-old man while walking along the sidewalk. They said he tried to start a conversation with her but when she ignored him, he became upset, slammed her to the ground and stabbed her at least once on the left side of her abdomen.

“It is a heinous crime when someone feels the need to stab someone — anyone — (but) even more so when it’s a woman who’s quite obviously pregnant,” said San Antonio police Sgt. Javier Salazar.

The suspect was also injured when some witnesses came to Kimbro’s rescue.

“Thankfully, several witnesses became involved,” Salazar said. “They did detain that suspect and held him until police arrived and arrested him. Thankfully none of those witnesses were hurt and we do commend them for getting involved in what they saw as someone being assaulted.”

Police investigators said the suspect was semi-conscious when he was transported to University Hospital.

He will be charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
