HIALEAH, Fla. – Police are investigating after a woman was stabbed multiple times in Hialeah, authorities confirmed.
The stabbing was reported Thursday at an apartment complex at 5653 W. 26th Ave.
Hialeah police Sgt. Ibel Perez said officers arrived at the scene to find the 27-year-old victim suffering from multiple stab wounds.
Perez said the offender fled the scene before police arrived.
Opa-locka Police Chief James Dobson said his officers spotted the car the suspect was in, but he fled from officers, running one police vehicle off the road.
“It ended here at Miami Jackson’s North hospital,” Dobson said. “The subject here resisted, was actually tased here on the scene and taken into custody by the Miami-Dade Police Department.”
Back in Hialeah, crime scene technicians were collecting evidence.
While no officers were hurt, police said Saul Pellot Duprey, 35, did hurt himself while trying to run away and jump over a fence to escape from authorities.
The victim, meanwhile, was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center.
Her condition has not been released.
Circumstances leading up to the stabbing remain unclear.
