Derick Waller reports from Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

Police remained on the scene hours later investigating.

Police said the 61-year-old was trying to break up a fight between some young men.

During that fight, she got stabbed in the chest.

The commotion and sound woke up neighbors.

"About midnight I heard a bunch of fighting and I decided to go back inside," one neighbor said.

"In the summertime, about twice a week, we have this kind of thing," another neighbor said. "There was also a shooting at the bodega up the street and someone was shot to death."

She was taken to Kings County Hospital where she was treated for what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.

The young men who were fighting apparently ran away.

So far, there are no arrests.
