Woman slashed in the throat outside apartment building

The incident took place at the Solaire West apartments

A person wanted for slashing a woman in the throat is still on the loose.

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the attack happened early Thursday morning at the Solaire West Apartments off of Maryland Parkway and Sahara Avenue.

Police say around 4 a.m., an attacker slashed a woman in the throat. Some apartment residents witnessed a woman bleeding heavily from her neck. The suspect was nowhere in sight after officers arrived at the scene.

Cherval Mills lives at the apartment complex.

"That was just crazy and people got kids around here and 4 o'clock in the morning," said Mills. "What's going on in this world at 4 o'clock in the morning?!"

Mills can't believe someone would just cut a person in the throat. Police say the victim was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

"She could have been involved, you know, to get your throat slashed is kind of gruesome," said Mills.

Police have not said if the stabbing was random or the victim knew her attacker. The throat slashing has everyone living here on edge.

Meritous Fernando lives at the apartment.

"It’s scary. You know, right here in our place already there's a lot of things going on," said Fernando.

A few people who knew the woman slashed in the throat say she is a good woman.

Mills says all that are living there are hoping the victim survives the attack.

"I feel sorry for her family, you know," said Mills. "I hope she have a speedy recovery."
