A Florida man has attempted to strangle a woman at a Miami bus stop with a shoelace in a horrible unexpected attack close to the airport.
Aaron Quinones, 27, has been charged with felony attempted murder after he allegedly attempted to strangle an unnamed woman, 26, at a bus stop close to the Miami International Airport on January 2 at about 11 am, but it doesn’t seem that the pair knew each other.
The woman, who appeared to be on her phone and had luggage sitting beside her was conscious that Aaron Quinones was behind her when he attacked her.
Video footage reveals that Aaron Quinones, who appeared to be going to or from the airport as he had a neck pillow resting on his backpack, calmly walked up behind her before stretching his arms out to wrap the makeshift noose around her neck.
The woman looked back at him as he tightened his grip on her, pulling her onto a bench as he climbed over her.
The pair wrestled for a moment before Aaron Quinones repeatedly hit the woman in the face as she boots her assailant away.
The woman was rescued by a bystander, sporting a green t-shirt, who approached the pair waving his arms before he drags Aaron Quinones off her, and then the video cut out.
Miami-Dade police officer Angel Rodriguez said that had it not been for the Good Samaritan that stepped in that basically stopped this individual from attacking the victim, the outcome may have been much worse.
Police reported Aaron Quinones escaped on foot after the bystander pulled him off the woman.
The woman was treated on scene by a Fire Rescue team and the extent of her injuries are unknown.
The bystander left the scene before police arrived and now authorities are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying him.
An investigation in Aaron Quinones is still ongoing, and no explanation for the attack has been shared.
He’s being held at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Centre on a $250,000 bond.
A newspaper outlet contacted the Miami-Dade Police Department for comment, and according to the Miami-Dade Police, crime is active within the country, with a total of 28 violent crimes occurring within the first two days of the year and 50 non-violent crimes.
This man will go to prison for an extremely long time.
We also need to see who the hero was who saved this woman’s life, but the fact that they left before the police arrived suggests that they didn’t want to be known.
However, this poor woman will never be the same again, and the mental anguish and fear that she will suffer will never leave her, and this was awful. You can’t even sit at a bus stop without stressing about getting attacked, and I believe that the poor woman should be praised as well because the courageous woman put up a heck of a fight.
The problem is, opening up borders and letting violent criminals out of prison have consequences, and America is a very unsafe country right now. This is America, the land of the free and the insane, and this man appeared to know precisely what he was doing, which is absolutely chilling, frankly terrifying and he probably would have killed the woman if that fearless person hadn’t have stepped in.
The point is women need to be protected from these predators, but it took another man to do this, and this fearless man, the Good Samaritan risked his own life in defence of a stranger. The perp could have had a knife, gun et cetera, who knows.
