ALBANY, N.Y. – Police in Albany have arrested an 18-year old in connection with the stabbing of a pregnant teen in the city Wednesday.
India Chaney, of Third Avenue in Albany, is accused of stabbing the 18-year old Tadeja Humber multiple times in the back.
According to Albany Police Public Safety Spokesman James Miller, the incident happened around 1:30 p.m. in front of building 76 of the Ida Yarborough housing complex, near Arbor Drive and Manning Boulevard in the city.
While it is not known at this time what the altercation was about, a witness, who wished to remain anonymous, told NEWS10 that Humber was outside talking with friends when a van pulled up to the group. According to the witness, Chaney then jumped out from the van and began attacking the Humber.
"I was just standing and I saw a girl jump out the van and they just starting fighting," the witness told NEWS10.
She continued, "I can't really say what happened, what went on."
Shoes believed to belong to both Humber and Chaney, along with a woman's wig were taken by police as evidence.
Humber, who is 4 months pregnant, received 3 stab wounds to the back and was taken to Albany Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Chaney complained of minor injuries and was taken to Albany Memorial Hospital.
Chaney was arraigned in Albany City Criminal Court Thursday morning under charges of second degree assault and fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon.
