Mother stabbed to death while walking with her baby in a stroller, suspect still on the loose: police

A young woman was stabbed to death while walking with her baby in Bradford, England, according to authorities.

Oldham resident Kulsuma Akter, 27, was stabbed during a walk at around 3:21 p.m. on Saturday. West Yorkshire Police said that she was “taken to hospital but subsequently died from her injuries.”

Akter was pushing a pram at the time, but authorities said that her young baby was not physically harmed.

“She was with her young baby at the time of the incident – the baby is safe and was not harmed in the incident,” police said in a statement.

Authorities have identified the murder suspect as Oldham resident Habibur Masum, 25. They believe that he and Akter knew each other.

Masum was filmed standing outside a bus stop shortly after the murder. Police also recovered a knife from the scene, but they believe the suspect may still be armed.

“He is pictured on CCTV wearing a duffle coat with three large horizontal lines of grey, white and black, light blue or grey tracksuit bottoms with a small black emblem on the left pocket and maroon trainers,” police explained. “A witness also reported seeing him wearing a grey [hoodie] with the hood up.”

Police also arrested a 23-year-old man who they believe assisted Masum with the homicide.
