The police had received an emergency call around 9:20 p.m. A neighbor had heard screams from the victim's apartment. Shortly afterwards, the officers arrived and found the resident, a 33-year-old Afghan woman, dead in the hallway. On site, the officials met the woman's 39-year-old roommate, who had been slightly injured when the police arrived. The 39-year-old man, who also comes from Afghanistan, was arrested on suspicion of urgent crime.
