A 23-year-old woman is in serious condition following a stabbing incident in Abbotsford this morning.
Police responded to a home on Blackham Drive after a 911 call at 9 a.m. from a woman saying she had been stabbed multiple times and her 18-month old baby had been taken.
According to Abbotsford police Cst. Ian MacDonald the victim said she knew her attacker and identified him as the father of her child. The 24-year-old man was under court order not to be there.
The victim was airlifted to hospital and is in serious condition.
Cst. MacDonald said they immediately started a search for the 24-year-old suspect and baby as well as notified the school district that they had someone at large in the area with a weapon. Just prior to issuing an Amber Alert, which is a province-wide notification to recover a child, they found the suspect hiding with the baby behind a hot tub at a neighbour’s house.
The 18-month old baby appeared to be uninjured but was checked out by medical professionals.
