Sheriff: Snow prints lead to suspected stabber in Pontiac
Pontiac — An alleged domestic violence stabbing in Pontiac on Friday night left a 33-year-old man wounded and a 30-year-old woman in police custody, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office said.
It was just before 7:30 p.m. when deputy sheriffs responded to a reported stabbing on the 300 block of Baldwin, south of Montcalm.
Police arrived and found the victim on a living room couch with a stab wound on his upper left shoulder. The man told police that he'd been arguing with his girlfriend and she'd stabbed him before leaving the scene in his Cadillac.
The victim told police that his girlfriend might have gone to the North Hill Farms Townhouses, about two miles away. Police drove to the complex and found the Cadillac sedan in question.
The car was empty, but there was "fresh blood smeared on the exterior" and footprints in the snow, authorities said.
Deputies followed those footprints to a home on the 80 block of Candlelite Lane and saw a woman inside matching the suspect's description. Police ordered the woman to leave the home, but went inside after her when she refused and made the arrest. She's at Oakland County Jail, pending charges.
Police impounded the Cadillac and recovered "a long knife with fresh blood."
Medics transported the victim to McLaren Hospital, where he's listed in stable condition.
