NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A woman was found slain in a parked car in the Bronx early Saturday, and a man who was with her at the time reportedly confessed to killing her.

Just before 4:30 a.m., police received a 911 call about a woman in a parked white two-door Honda CR-Z at Bruckner Boulevard and Brook Avenue in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx. The 22-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 40-year-old man was arrested at the scene, and taken to Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center, where he was treated for an injury to his left arm. He was reported in stable condition as of Saturday afternoon.

The man confessed to police that he had killed the woman, police told 1010 WINS. He had not been charged as of the 4 p.m. hour.

The New York Post reported investigators believe the woman was killed in the man’s apartment on Fox Street, and that he brought her body to the desolate Bruckner Boulevard intersection about half a mile away, where he tried unsuccessfully to commit suicide by slashing his wrists.

The Post reported that blood was coming from the woman’s nose, but there were no other signs of trauma. The man and woman knew each other, but their relationship was unclear, the Post reported.

Police had not identified the woman as of early Saturday afternoon. The Post reported she was from Queens.
