AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

A 65-year-old Akron woman was stabbed in a terrifying home invasion early Tuesday morning.

It happened around 3 a.m. in the 800 block of Boulevard Street.

The victim was in bed when an unknown suspect entered the house and stabbed her in the chest. After stabbing the victim, the suspect fled the house. 

The victim was rushed to Akron City Hospital where her injuries do not appear to be life threatening. 

19 Action News has learned the victim's home had recently been burglarized. Since then, her daughter and two nieces have been staying with her at her Boulevard Street home.  

On August 31, an unknown suspect forced open a first floor door. The suspect(s) entered the house, took money from the victim's purse and her spare set of car keys before taking her car.  The car was recovered later on East Market Street.

The suspect is described as a black man, 18 – 30 years old, 5'11" – 6'02", 140 – 170 lbs. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants with a white stripe on the outside of the legs.
