According to authorities, a man sliced his girlfriend’s throat in downtown St. Paul Monday night, gravely wounding her.
Officers were dispatched to the light-rail station outside Union Station at 7:50 p.m. According to Steve Linders, a police spokesperson, a bystander was seen clutching a pink fleece jacket to the woman’s wound because she was bleeding excessively.
According to Linders, paramedics transported the woman, who is in her 40s, to Regions Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries, which she is expected to survive.
According to authorities, the suspect is the woman’s boyfriend. Officers from St. Paul and Metro Transit investigated the area for the suspect but were unable to locate him. As of Tuesday afternoon, he had not been apprehended.
