Woman in Washington stabbed to death by rival after a fight

A young woman who went to a Washington Heights apartment to fight with her longtime rival died after the woman she challenged repeatedly stabbed her, police sources said.

The 20-year-old victim, who lived in Queens, showed up at her foe’s apartment on W. 163rd St. and Amsterdam Ave. about 4:30 p.m., sources said.

But her rival, also 20, was armed with a knife and repeatedly stabbed her, cops said.

Medics arrived to find the victim bleeding and unconscious. They took her to Harlem Hospital, but she couldn’t be saved. Police did not immediately release her name.

Police took the woman who lived in the apartment into custody. Charges against her were pending.

The killing took place in Savanna Hall, a recently-constructed seven-floor apartment building that caters to the formerly homeless, young people aging out of the foster care system and affordable housing renters.
