Police Arrest Suspect In Crafton Woman’s Stabbing

CRAFTON (KDKA) – A man wanted in connection with the stabbing of a woman in Crafton has been arrested.

According to police, officers were called to the 1400 block of Crafton Boulevard for a domestic disturbance report around 8 p.m. Friday.

When they arrived, they found a woman suffering from three stab wound to the arm and one to the knee. She told officers 24-year-old Corey Lee had stabbed her and fled on foot. According to the criminal complaint, Lee and the victim have a 7-month-old daughter together.

The woman said Lee had followed her home and an argument quickly escalated and became physical.

She said Lee punched her in the face and stabbed her with a knife before fleeing the scene.

“Pulled out a knife and just started stabbing me, I’m blocking my arm by my neck, thank God, because if I didn’t, he would have got me int the throat,” the victim, who KDKA did not identify, said.

Lee was also wanted for making terroristic threats toward the same woman on March 13.

In that incident, he allegedly told her “Your life is over,” and “Get your casket ready.”

“He got mad because I called his P.O. because he threatened to kill me,” she said.

The woman had a message for her alleged attacker.

“Know that you hurt me pretty bad, and I’m glad you got what you deserve, and now you can realize that what you did was wrong and this will be a wake-up call for you,” she said.

Today, police announced they had arrested Lee.

Lee’s  name was put on what’s called the “spin network,” which allows officers to share information about fugitives and other police matters.  Sheriffs deputy Ron Stokes noticed Lee’s name after he signed up in  family court and arrested him without incident and took him to jail.
