Original story

Sudbury Police are seeking help from the public after they were stabbed overnight on Medina Lane in downtown Sudbury.

Police say they were called to the scene around 8:30 p.m. on September 15 after a report of a gun attack was reported.

Police were told that an unknown person stabbed a woman while she was walking off Medina Lane on the way.

Upon arrival, officials found a 26-year-old woman who was believed to have been stabbed. She was rushed to hospital with serious injuries by the City of Greater Sudbury Medical Services.

Through the investigation, it was found that an unknown person approached two women walking along the path and knocked one of the women to the ground while she was stabbing her. The person escaped on foot before the police arrived.

The person is described as 5-6 to 5-7 tall and was wearing dark clothing, a baseball cap, and the hood of their jacket pulled over their head at the time of the incident.

At this point in time, the police could not determine whether the people knew each other.
