Officers arrived shortly after the call and located the victim, who was barely conscious. Through initial observations, it appeared that a struggle took place within the residence, and that the victim had been assaulted with a knife. The victim was able to give officers information as to the suspect’s identity prior to EMS arriving on scene, and it was determined she was struck, choked and then stabbed multiple times in her head prior to her transport to a local hospital.
