BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) — Police say a man broke into an apartment in southern Michigan and attacked the mother of his 13-year-old child with a sword.
The Battle Creek Police Department says the 35-year-old woman is in serious condition after being stabbed multiple times early Friday with a 3-foot (1-meter) sword. She was taken to a hospital, where she underwent surgery. The sword was found at the scene.
Police say the 35-year-old man fled, but was identified to investigators by the child. He was spotted a short time later by a Kalamazoo County sheriff’s deputy near Kalamazoo and was taken into custody without incident. He has been jailed and is expected to face charges.
The attack is under investigation.
