A 76-year-old woman was injured and a man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing in San Mateo on Monday afternoon, according to the Police Department.
Officers responded to reports of a stabbing at 51 W. Fourth Avenue at about 3:35 p.m. and found a woman lying on the ground outside an apartment on the second floor suffering from an apparent stab wound, police said.
A male was standing next to the woman and was subsequently taken in to custody, according to police.
A weapon located in the immediate area appears to be the weapon used to stab the woman, police said.
The woman was transported to the nearest trauma center for treatment and is currently in stable condition.
Police said a family argument just outside the apartment may have led to the stabbing, though detectives are still working to determine a motive.
This is an isolated incident and as of Monday night, there were no other suspects outstanding.
The suspect's name has not yet been released to the public.
