Woman, 83, stabbed in the face by a stranger
An 83-year-old woman is in hospital with serious injuries after being stabbed in the face by a stranger, Windsor police say.
The woman was walking near Ottawa Street around 11 a.m. Wednesday near Brush Salon when the man approached her from behind and stabbed her more than once in the "facial area," according to Windsor police. Police spokesman Const. Andrew Drouillard described the attack as a "random attack."
The woman was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but she is expected to survive, Drouillard said.
Drouillard said the man took off the plaid shirt he was wearing as he fled the scene. Though police seized the knife used in the attack, Drouillard says he may be armed with a weapon and the public is asked to stay away from him.
Police arrested a suspect Wednesday afternoon.
