A woman who was sitting on a park bench and using her phone was suddenly stabbed in the back yesterday morning, police say.

According to the NYPD, a 55-year-old woman was sitting in front of 147 Mott Street when, at around 4:55 a.m., "the suspect approached a 55-year-old female victim and struck her on the back with an unknown object causing a laceration." The suspect then fled.

The Post reports the victim, Dieu Ho, who was treated at Bellevue Hospital, had been "chatting on the phone with her husband as she waited for him to meet her at a bench." Ho's husband owns a store in Chinatown and was just a block away; her son told DNAinfo, "Luckily there were no organs punctured. She did get some stitches and she’s got an appointment at the hospital next week."

Police released images of the suspect, who is described as approximately 25 to 30 years-old, 6'0", 175 pounds, with a medium build. He was wearing a white t-shirt, red sweat pants, red and white basketball sneakers and had a red and white drawstring backpack.
