Elyria neighborhood on high alert after would-be rapist stabs woman


An Elyria neighborhood on red alert after a woman is stabbed by a would-be rapist.

The attack happened on Tuesday behind a storage building on Taylor Street.

35-year-old Daleisha Bell was found with a knife to her stomach by a good Samaritan, who called 911.

The area while not very populated, is heavily traveled by folks in cars, bikes and on foot.

Investigators are trying to figure out why Bell was on the tracks but so was her attacker who attacked her from behind.

Nick Harrison, who works near where the attack happened, is sorry he wasn't there for Bell.

"If I would have heard some women yelling I would have gone over there to see why," said Nick Harrison.

 The suspect in this attack is still out there. If you have any information on the attack call the police.
