A 26-year-old man identified as Fernando Munera, who allegedly stabbed his girlfriend, Alayna Hardy, on May 19, has been arrested. According to The Post, police sources revealed that Hardy had gotten a restraining order against Munera before the attack.

Munera had received the restraining order after he allegedly pinned his former lover to the floor in her apartment. In addition, he took her phone and vandalized some household items.

The charges which accompanied the restraining order included unlawful imprisonment, criminal mischief, and harassment in the second degree. 

After being barred by a court order from contacting Hardy, Munera broke into her apartment located at East 115th street and began stabbing her continuously all over the body.

In an attempt to fight back for her life, Hardy used a knife on Munera's chest and neck regions. A neighbor who knew the couple revealed that he heard a woman scream, which was succeeded by utter silence. 

Police confirmed that Hardy died after she was rushed to the Metropolitan Hospital, and Munera was taken to Harlem Hospital in critical condition.
