Niagara Regional Police (NRPS) are seeking a woman from St. Catharines, Ont., connected with an early morning stabbing in the city’s Western Hill area Wednesday.

Investigators say the female teen victim was found just before 6:30 a.m. in the area of Edith Street and St. Paul Street West with a stab wound.

The suspect fled the scene before first responders could arrive. The victim was transported to hospital with a serious injury.

“I can confirm this was not a random attack,” NRPS Const. Barry Ravenek told Global News.
