Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say a woman who was pulled from a burning home early Friday had been stabbed.
Emergency crews were called to the 10300 block of Walkers Ferry Road around 3:30 a.m. Friday where they found a residence on fire. Firefighters searching the home found a woman inside of the resident, who had been stabbed.
The victim was taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Main for treatment. Paramedics initially described her injuries as life-threatening.
Authorities say they don’t believe the assault was a random act of violence and were working Friday to identify a suspect.
