(07/27/17) Search Ongoing for Stabbing Suspect in Fairfax

Fair Oaks Police District- There is an ongoing search for the person who stabbed a woman walking on a path which parallels Vaden Drive near the intersection of Sprague Avenue.

Shortly after 7:30 this morning, officers from the Fair Oaks District were flagged down by a citizen reporting someone had been stabbed. Officers located the victim, a woman in her 20’s. A preliminary investigation determined a man approached her from behind, and stabbed her in the neck. The suspect ran away, and was last seen heading toward Blake Lane. The victim was taken to the hospital, with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

The search is ongoing for the suspect. Detectives are canvassing the area, and attempting to identify and interview potential witnesses.
