Pasco County, Florida Sheriff Chris Nocco joins ‘Fox & Friends’ to discuss police’s takedown of a career criminal who shot at his wife and cops.
A suspect was arrested for allegedly making lewd remarks to a woman and then stabbing her at a bus stop, Miami police say.
Miami Beach resident Richard Jin, 34, was charged with second-degree felony attempted murder, third-degree robbery by sudden snatching and third-degree criminal mischief.
The incident took place at around 7:30 p.m. on Saturday while the victim and a witness were waiting at a bus stop on Biscayne Boulevard.
In a police report obtained by Fox News Digital, a witness told police that she and the victim were waiting for the bus when they were approached by the suspect. Jin allegedly made lewd remarks that were later redacted by the police.

When the victim began recording Jin’s behavior, he allegedly grabbed her cellphone and threw it on the street, shattering its screen.
“The victim ran after her phone; to which the defendant responded by chasing her and tackling her to the ground,” the police report read.
The suspect then procured a large knife and stabbed the victim multiple times, according to the witness.
