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

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."
