Police in Longmont, Colorado, say a woman savagely cut a baby out of another woman’s womb, killing the infant. The mother is expected to survive, the Longmont Times-Call reported.
Upon going to an area home, the victim was “attacked and her baby was removed from her,” a police spokesperson said.
After stabbing the pregnant victim, the attacker then “drove herself and the baby to the hospital,” according to Daily Camera reporter Alex Burness.

Longmont PD: The 2 women did not know each other prior to today. PD knows why the pregnant woman went to Green Pl. house, but won't say yet.— Alex Burness (@alex_burness) March 19, 2015
To be clear, the suspect, who arrived at hospital claiming she'd miscarried, isn't in custody yet. She remains @ hospital. Victim there too.— Alex Burness (@alex_burness) March 19, 2015
Police also reportedly said the two women did not know each other. Officers had yet to reveal a motive in the attack on Wednesday night.
