A pregnant woman’s boyfriend went berserk and stabbed her multiple times, leaving her unborn baby dead.The victim, 30-year-old Liv Abreu, was attacked at her home in the Bronx
A 30-year-old man in the Bronx surrendered to police, three hours after a frenzied knife attack on his heavily pregnant live-in girlfriend, with the unlikely story that the murderous attack was an ‘accident’.
Oscar Alvarez reportedly went berserk and stabbed Liv Abreu, 26-weeks pregnant, with their child, repeatedly inside their Bronx apartment early Tuesday, critically injuring her and killing the unborn baby, polices said.
U.S. Army veteran 30-year-old Liv Abreu, was stabbed six times in the chest and once in the side inside her Walton Ave. home near Yankee Stadium, officials said.
The bleeding Abreu, though her third trimester, managed to drag herself from the third floor to a neighbor’s apartment, a floor below and called for help after the 12:30 a.m. attack.
Abreu, who served with the 82nd Airborne Division, was rushed to hospital. The baby died there, and she was listed in critical but stable condition.
“She was so excited about the baby, both of them were,” said stunned neighbor Gloria Lambert, “This was going be their first.
“She was showing,” Lambert added. “She seemed so happy.”

Live-in boyfriend Oscar Alvarez, surrendered around 4 a.m. to police at Transit District 11, improbably claiming the multiple stabbing was an “accident,” sources said.
The couple was alone inside their shared third-floor apartment on Walton Avenue near East 165th Street in West Concourse around 12:30 a.m. when the 30-year-old man lashed out at his girlfriend, police sources said.
Alvarez, stabbed the expectant mother at least six times in the torso, before he allegedly fled in his girlfriend’s SUV.
After Abreu called 911, she was rushed to Lincoln Hospital in critical condition and taken into surgery. The unborn baby was pronounced dead.

Alvarez initially fled the scene in his girlfriend’s 2004 Jeep Cherokee SUV, sources said. The Jeep was found abandoned just a block from their home, and cops recovered a knife from the bloody crime scene, about four hours later.
“Is this a joke?” said Abreu’s stunned sister Sarah Abreu Morel after hearing the news. “This can’t be real.”
Alvarez was charged with attempted murder, assault with intent to cause serious physical injury, assault and weapons possession.
Abreu, a 2012 graduate of political science and government from the City University of New York also served as a spokesperson for the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, and worked as a student assistant helping veterans enrolled at CUNY.
The former paratrooper and human resources specialist in the U.S. Army, according to a social media profile, is currently working for T-Mobile as a retail store manager, and joined the company eight years ago as a sales associate.

Neighbor Lambert said Alvarez often drove Abreu to their jobs at a T-Mobile store in Manhattan.
“I feel so bad,” she said, shaking her head. “How could he do this?”
While sources said there was no domestic violence history between Abreu and Alvarez, neighbor Lambert said she began suspecting problems between the pair in recent months.
“I would always hear people screaming, a woman. Now I think it might’ve been her,” she said. “It started a few months ago. A month ago someone was screaming so bad, like a woman getting beaten.”
Lambert said Abreu never appeared in distress or with any visible injuries.
“The guy, he was very quiet,” she said of Alvarez. “I cannot say he always looked happy but he was respectful, always said hi, how are you.”
