Espy looked outside the window of her apartment and saw a man in the building across the street straddle a woman on a couch, stab her in the chest, clean up the blood, and take her money. It was the third woman Espy had seen this man do this to, and the man did not see Espy, but she still did not call the police.

SBQs first--Man: Adult? Male? Female? Human? Living? Yes to all. Er, wait, not the female part.

Three Women: Adult? Male? Female? Human? Living? Yes to all but the male bit.

Espy: Adult? Male? Female? Human? Living? Adult living human female.

Stabbed: With a knife? Syringe? Pencil? Feather? Finger? Toe? Ear? Food? None of these ... a syringe is closest.

Blood: From him? From the women? From something else entirely? from the woman being stabbed.

Three different women? if so: did they know each other?
Were the women alive before the man stabbed them? afterwards?
Did the stabbing belong to the man's business?

Were the women conscious when the man stabbed them? Was he actually stabbing her chest (as in the area directly over the heart)? Or would it be more accurate to say that he was 'stabbing' her breasts? Was he injecting silicon, or some similar substance, into the women?

Was the man a doctor? a plastic surgeon? No to both.

Were the women conscious when the man stabbed them? Yes
Was he actually stabbing her chest (as in the area directly over the heart)? Yes, and the general area.
Or would it be more accurate to say that he was 'stabbing' her breasts? Not more accurate, no, though he may have.
Was he injecting silicon, or some similar substance, into the women? No.

Did the blood in the statement come from the women the guy was 'stabbing'?
By stabbing, do you mean repeatedly striking with a pointed item?
Did the man leave with anything else after each incident (apart from the money)? Was he collecting blood (or some other) samples?

In the process of stabbing the women, does the man pierce their skin? Would you say that the blood produced was 'substantial'?

Were the women in any danger of losing their lives during this procedure? Was the man saving their lives by doing this?

Is he performing acupuncture, or something similar?

Was the man tattooing the women?

By stabbing, do you mean repeatedly striking with a pointed item? Precisely.
Did the man leave with anything else after each incident (apart from the money)? No
Was he collecting blood (or some other) samples? No

By Ed Mason (Logician):

Would you say that the blood produced was 'substantial'? Not terribly.

Were the women in any danger of losing their lives during this procedure? Highly doubtful.
Was the man saving their lives by doing this? No

Is he performing acupuncture, or something similar? Not too far off...

By Ed Mason (Logician):

Was the man tattooing the women? Giddyup!

***** SPOILER *****

It was the third woman Espy had seen this man do this to, and the man did not see Espy, but she still did not call the police.

Espy lived across the street from a tattoo parlor.

Actually a bend of a true story. A woman I went to grad school with saw a guy across the street from her on top of a woman in his living room, it looked like his hands were on her neck, and she was bleeding.
The woman called the police, and found out later that this guy was a tattoo artist and she was getting a tattoo of a locket around her neck.

I did think someone who would be tattooing areas such as women's chest areas should perhaps invest in better draperies.
