LONGMONT (KRON) — Police on Friday released the horrifying 911 call placed by an expectant mother who was found stabbed in the stomach, her fetus removed from her womb.

“She cut me,” she told the operator.

“Who cut you?” the operator asked.

“I don’t know,” the victim said.

Longmont police say the victim, a 26-year-old woman who was seven months pregnant, visited a home on the 1600 block of Green Place sometime before 3 p.m. on Wednesday to buy baby clothes that were advertised on Craigslist.

Upon arriving, the victim texted the seller, a woman who went by “D,” according to a police report.

“She cut you in your stomach?” the operator asked.

“Uh-huh. I’m pregnant,” the victim said.

Police say that the suspect, Dynel Lane, 34, of Longmont, stabbed the victim in the stomach with a 3-inch blade then removed her unborn baby.

“Officers arrived on scene and could hear a female calling for help inside the home,” a statement from Longmont Police said.

Responding officers located the on a bed, she was found bleeding and going in and out of consciousness. She was transported to Longmont United Hospital where she underwent surgery and is expected to recover.

Her baby did not survive.

Lane’s husband, 35-year-old David Ridley, told police that when he returned home from work he found his wife in the basement “covered in blood,” the police report said.

“She told David she just miscarried and the baby was in the bathtub upstairs,” the police report said. The baby was found gasping for breath in a bathtub.

Lane, a former nurse aide, was ordered held on $2 million bail Thursday while prosecutors weigh charges against her, including whether to accuse her of killing a fetus.
