Outside of one local Minneapolis ABC news station, the media have virtually gone dark on this horrific story. Even the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the city’s largest newspaper, has been AWOL on this story. Unbelievably, Morgan Evenson survived the savage knife attack on her by a Muslim. You can hear about her struggle and survival in the video below.
WND Morgan Evenson (in hospital below) was walking home in downtown Minneapolis about 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 13 when a black Somali man got out of his car, chased her down, tackled and stabbed her repeatedly. The feisty 26-year-old frantically fought back, kicking, scratching and screaming for help.
At some point, neighbors heard her screams and came to help. Her attacker – described as a Somali Muslim man in his early 20s, about 5-foot-7 with a slight build and wearing grey stone-washed jeans – ran away.
Evenson was left bleeding on the curb with 14 stab wounds on her arms, neck and back. Her kidney was lacerated. She was lucky to survive the attack.
It happened while she was walking home from the Apple Store, where she worked, about eight blocks away from her apartment. That’s when the man attacked her for no apparent reason.
Police, who have not made any arrests in the case, are calling it a botched robbery.
Police have called the case unusual for the level of brutality just to get a woman’s purse, leading some to wonder if the assailant didn’t want more than just a purse.
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the city’s largest newspaper, has been AWOL on the story. Only one media outlet, local ABC News affiliate KSTP, included in its on-air coverage the fact that the victim described her assailant as Somali, but the station’s website article failed to mention that fact.
