Lorain – A Lorain woman was stabbed above the eye late Saturday night during a fight inside of a car on South Broadway.

Lorain County 9-1-1 Operators were first receiving calls of a traffic crash on Middle Ridge Road near West Ridge Road from people passing by. As Rescuers were responding they were updated the crash might be on the Route 2 overpass. Then word came that the incident was actually a stabbing and not a crash.

As State Troopers arrived on scene they found the suspect south of the scene near one of the off ramps – he was quickly taken into custody.

Troopers began sorting through the details after the suspect was secured and learned from the victim and family members that had arrived after the incident that it was her brother that had stabbed her. They also learned that the woman struck her brother first during the argument. The vehicle had stopped on the overpass and when they exited the vehicle the brother had opened a small pocket knife and stabbed his sister just above the right eye.

LifeCare Paramedics treated the woman at the scene before transporting her to Mercy Regional Medical Center in Lorain. Her brother was turned over at the scene to Lorain Police. Police said at the scene that the female will also likely be charged with Domestic Violence.
