Fleeing woman stabbed to death in middle of city street

Bloodied from stab wounds, a 37-year-old woman ran from her house Sunday afternoon in a desperate attempt to flee her boyfriend, only to be overtaken and stabbed to death by the man in the middle of a Camden street, authorities said.

Raul Quinones went to the Garfield Avenue home of Elaine Jimenez around 3 p.m., under the guise of picking up belongings, prosecutors said.

But when he entered the home in the city’s Cramer Hill neighborhood, he instead stabbed Jimenez, authorities said. She fled the house despite her injury, and Quinones turned his weapon on her 20-year-old son, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office said.

He stabbed the man repeatedly before following Jimenez out into the street, authorities allege. He overtook her and, in full view of the quiet neighborhood near Von Nieda Park, prosecutors say he murdered her before fleeing on a motorcycle.

Someone called 911 and told police that a woman had been stabbed by her boyfriend, and officers found Jimenez in the intersection of 29th Street and Arthur Avenue, the prosecutor’s office said in a release.

On Sunday afternoon, investigators had used cones to mark a spot on the sidewalk where a bloodstain was visible.

After taking her to the hospital, police found her son “seriously wounded” inside the home. No update on his condition was available, and his name was not released.

U.S. Marshals found Quinones at his home on Fountain Avenue late Sunday.

He faces charges of murder and attempted murder. He is being held in the Camden County Jail. The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office plans to ask a judge to order Quinones jailed pending his trial.
