A pregnant woman has been stabbed to death while on a date with her boyfriend.

The 22-year-old was three months pregnant and a mother to a three-year-old daughter, NBC reports.
Police are searching for two Hispanic women and one Hispanic man in connection with the brutal attack.

The car then reverses out of the parking space.
Preciado’s cousin, Christina, said: ‘Did you know that by hurting Jasmine, you hurt her daughter? You hurt her family, and you hurt her friends.’
‘You need to turn yourself in, no matter what you’re going to pay for it,’ relative David Preciado told ABC 7.
