Police sas A woman was stabbed by her deaf, mute boyfriend, who then leaped out their Bronx building to his death sparking a frantic search for her two children. Police say the woman was stabbed multiple times inside her sixth floor apartment on East 168 Street just before 3:50 a.m.

She ran downstairs, where witnesses saw her slashed and bleeding.

She was rushed to Lincoln Medical Center in critical but stable condition, officials say.

The boyfriend, 38-year-old Michael Jones, was pronounced dead at the scene.

In all the commotion, her two children, ages three and eight, went missing for a little while. Eyewitness News is told they were later found unharmed at an aunt's house in Upper Manhattan, and taken to a local police precinct.
