Police add that the victim suffered “serious, but non-life-threatening injuries” and a knife has been recovered.

At around 8:15 a.m. Tuesday, police say a man who “was familiar with the occupants” of the apartment building he lived in, noticed a stranger inside and asked her to leave.

Police say the two became involved in an argument and the man was stabbed by the woman, who then fled.
