Man fled hospital after attacking woman in her Altoona home

News

UPDATE: Police say that Moses Jones a.k.a. Faheem Hasan was invited to the residence by the woman’s friend to smoke when he proceeded to barge into the woman’s bedroom asking about a stolen bicycle. The woman, who did not know Jones, maintained that she had no idea what he was talking about. Jones then shoved her on the bed and began to hit her in the head with closed fists.

Jones reportedly got off of the woman and asked where her daughter was. Out of fear for her 11-year-old daughter’s life, she grabbed a folding knife from next to the bed and stabbed him in the torso. The two began to struggle and she was able to force him down the hallway, away from her daughter’s room before he fled the apartment. The woman’s friend also left the scene before police arrived.

Jones reportedly drove himself to UPMC Altoona to seek medical treatment. After police say they found numerous names/aliases, driver’s numbers, dates of birth, and social security numbers for Jones, they went to question him at UPMC Altoona when he invoked his right to remain silent. Police then ended the interview.

After being questioned, Moses Jones reportedly left UPMC Altoona. Altoona Police believe he is still wearing his hospital gown and may be headed to his native Philadelphia.
