ONTARIO, Ore. — Ontario Police have taken a man into custody, after they say he stabbed a female family member multiple times inside the Saint Alphonsus Medical Center, leaving her with life-threatening injuries.

The 28-year-old victim had to be airlifted to another hospital out of the area.

Police say the attack happened just before 12:30 a.m. in the early hours of Friday morning.

Authorities say the suspect, whom they only have identified as a 28-year-old man, immediately fled the scene but was found and arrested a short time later.

Police are withholding the name of the victim at this time.
