“He entered her bedroom and assaulted her. He also tried to sexually assault her but the victim was able to fight him off,” he said.

The woman fought him off, but she might end up paying for it with her life. Donakowski said she was stabbed several times during the struggle and is currently in critical condition at a local hospital with wounds all over her body.
