Stabbing leaves Lakewood woman injured; suspect on the loose

Lakewood police were on the look-out Friday for a man they believe tried to kill a woman who’d just broken off a relationship with him.


Lt. Dave Guttu said the 30-year-old man attacked the woman while she was sleeping in a unit of the Sage Terrace Apartments about 7:15 a.m. Friday.


She’d ended their relationship just a few hours before, Guttu said.


The man reportedly entered the apartment, stabbed the woman in the back with a knife then tried to smother her with a comforter, Guttu said. She suffered serious injuries but is expected to live, he said.


Guttu said investigators know who the man is and hoped to pick him up soon.


The News Tribune is not releasing the suspect’s name because he has yet to be charged with a crime.
