RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas, Dec. 13, 2008 -- The Air Force recruiter who was stabbed outside her Harlem, N.Y., recruiting office Dec. 11 remains in stable condition.

Staff Sgt. Sarah Charles, a recruiter with the 313th Recruiting Squadron, was speaking with a potential applicant when she was attacked by a female assailant. The recruiter survived the attack thanks to the help of a civilian who came to the sergeant's aid. The attacker was apprehended by N.Y. City police soon after.

Sergeant Charles is a native New Yorker who has served in the Air Force for seven years and as a recruiter for two and one-half years.

The incident currently is under investigation by local authorities. Air Force officials have no reason to believe that this was a specific incident targeting military recruiters.
