A woman was stabbed in the abdomen when she walked in on a burglar Wednesday morning at her home in Hall County.
Hours later, deputies were still searching for the assailant.
The incident happened at the woman’s home in the 5700 block of Avalon Commons Way in Clemont, according to the Hall County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies received the call about the assault around 9 a.m. and responded to the home, the sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks said.
When they arrived, they found the wounded woman.
“The victim reported that she was confronted by an unknown male at her home, who then assaulted her before taking unknown items and fleeing the scene,” Sgt. Wilbanks said.
Deputies did not say what was taken from the home or how the man managed to get inside the house.
The victim was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with injuries that did not appear to be life threatening. Her condition was unknown late Wednesday.
