LAKE STATION — Police are investigating after a woman was stabbed in her home early Thursday. 

Lake Station officers were dispatched about 12:45 a.m. to the 800 block of West 37th Avenue to find a 40-year-old woman in the driver seat of a car with stab wounds, police said. 

Officers provided medical treatment to the female until medics arrived. The victim told police the stabbing happened at the home in Ravinia Pines, a mobile home park at 534 E. 37th Ave., by a "known female subject," who is also a neighbor at Ravinia Pines. 

The woman was first taken to St. Mary Medical Center but later airlifted to a hospital in South Bend with "many stab and cut wounds."  

Officers were able to obtain a search warrant and collect evidence related to the crime.

The suspect is being held and is expected to be formally charged through the Lake County Prosecutor's office, police said. 

Anyone with information regarding this case can contact Detective Sergeant Glenn Gulley at 219-962-1186 or by email at ggulley@lakestation-in.gov.
