Rios appears to be stupefied as she is seen banging on the neighboring doors for help.

One woman opens her door but immediately closes it after she sees Rios and calls 911, NBC reported.


Another woman, Maria Guardiola, who came out of her apartment to walk her dog, hurries to Rios' side.

“When I opened the door, and I saw her there, I started screaming. She was bleeding all over, and she was telling me, 'Call my husband.'”

Maria Guardiola, NBC Network, July 31, 2018.

The cops arrived after the 911 call, and Rios was immediately taken in for treatment.


The accused attacker, Gomez, was discovered by police in another apartment on the same floor where he allegedly attacked Rios.

The video shows Gomez, wearing a pink nightgown, being taken into custody by the police. According to the police, it is unclear as to why Gomez reportedly attached Rios.

Despite suffering from serious injuries, Rios is expected to survive according to the network.


Gomez, on the other hand, is facing several charges. NBC tried to contact Creedmoor Psychiatric Center, but there was no response from them on the same day.

CBS New York reported that Rios was a home health aide who cares for a 90-year-old woman with dementia.

She was recovering in the surgical ICU wing of the Lincoln Hospital. The video showed Rios walking from door to door seeking help.
