This link has a video report with close up pictures of the knife and gun. Looks like a Beretta Tomcat in .32 ACP and a cheap steak knife.

"The victim asked the suspect what floor he needed, and the victim described the suspect as being out of it, possibly high or drunk, but when he said the sixth floor, the victim stated she became nervous," a police narrative said."
The woman, ...but when she was trying to get in, the man banged her head on something unknown and pushed his knee into her chest,. ...forced the woman across the center console inside her car.
... pulled a knife and demanded the woman's money.
... the man stopped demanding money and ordered her into the car and pushed her toward the passenger seat.
The gun,... didn't fire at first and the attacker hit her in the face and held a hand over her mouth with one hand and was moving the knife toward her with the other.
"Fearing for her life, the victim kept pulling the trigger of her gun, which finally fired, and struck the suspect in the neck."
Yikes. I wonder if the round failed to fire at first, or she was really having trouble getting the safety off?
In any case, good for her!
