By Sam Lane, Reporter
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Officials are attempting to locate a man who allegedly stabbed a woman in what started as a domestic dispute Friday night.
Police received a call about the domestic conflict shortly after 8:30 p.m. Friday night. They responded to a house on Wenig Road NE in Cedar Rapids and found a woman who’d been stabbed. She was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, officials said.
A witness who lives in the area said he saw a woman coming from the woods in front of his house and she seemed “dazed.” When he approached her, she had blood on her forehead and said she’d been stabbed and beaten up by her husband. The witness said it appeared as though she’d been stabbed in her lower back.
He said he called police and the first cars arrived on the scene within about five minutes. The woman at first refused an ambulance, but was eventually taken to the hospital.
Cedar Rapids police Sgt. Thomas Grubb said the man could be “anywhere in Linn County” and officials are working with his family to locate him. Grubb said he didn’t know the hospital to which the woman was taken. Officials aren’t releasing specific information on the man as he has not yet been located or charged.
The victim has been treated and released from the hospital.
