He closely followed her as she drove home and waited until she was walking towards her apartment, before exiting his vehicle nearby and approaching her with a hunting knife. Catherine ran, but Moseley soon caught up to her and stabbed her twice in the back, causing her to scream. Noticing that people could see him, and a neighbor shouting at him, scared him away for a few minutes, which he used to park in a different location and change hats to hide his face.
