The perp outside 111 Chrystie

An Asian woman was stabbed to death inside her Lower East Side apartment early Sunday morning after a homeless man followed her home, police said.

Cops say a neighbor across the hall on the top floor of 111 Chrystie Street (just south of Delancey) called 911 at around 4:30am Sunday morning after hearing the 35-year-old victim screaming.

Officers arrived and found the perp, who tried to flee via the fire escape, before barricading himself inside the apartment.

The Emergency Service Unit arrived and broke down the inner door, where they discovered the attacker covered in blood, with the woman in the bathroom tub “bleeding from multiple wounds to the body,” according to reports.

He was cuffed at the scene.

Though the victim was Asian, cops do not suspect the incident was a hate crime. Motive remains unknown as the crime is still under investigation, police sources said.
