A 14-year-old boy suspected of fatally stabbing 18-year-old Tessa Majors is on the loose in Upper Manhattan after he jumped out of a car on his way to meet with police.
Citing police sources, the New York Post reports that the unidentified juvenile suspect was traveling in a vehicle with an adult on Monday on their way to meet with police officers when the teen bolted from the vehicle.
The adult then contacted authorities, and police are reportedly searching for the suspect in Harlem across 125th street, just north of Morningside Park, where Majors was fatally stabbed on Wednesday night.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, a 13-year-old boy has been charged with murder after he reportedly confessed to his involvement in the robbery-turned-stabbing. That juvenile male reportedly told police that another boy in the group of three was the one who stabbed the Barnard College freshman. The juvenile implicated by the suspect in custody is the teen that police are searching for in upper Manhattan.
This is a developing story and all information is preliminary. CrimeOnline will provide further updates when more information is available.
