CHICAGO — A woman was stabbed in the head by a female attacker who also suffered injuries in what appeared to be a domestic fight in Englewood Monday morning, police said.

Officers were called for a domestic disturbance in the 7000 block of South Green Street about 5 a.m., cops said.

Police said they found two injured women, including a 22-year-old who had been stabbed in her head, back, hand, arm and upper torso. The victim was stabbed by a 27-year-old woman who appeared to be an acquaintance, police said. The alleged attacker also suffered a stab wound in her left leg and was taken into custody, police said.

When police arrived, they found blood all over the walls and floor of the first-floor apartment, said Officer Laura Kubiak, a police spokeswoman.

The younger woman told police that prior to the incident she tried getting into the home by knocking on the back door, Kubiak said.

The older woman opened the door and began stabbing her with a knife that was in her hand, Kubiak said. It was unclear how the attacker suffered her injuries, police added.

Another woman, who wasn't injured, was inside the apartment and witnessed the incident, Kubiak said.

The 22-year-old was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said. Chicago Fire Department officials said she was in serious-to-critical condition.

The 27-year-old alleged attacker was taken to St. Bernard Hospital in fair-to-serious condition, police and the fire department said.

Authorities did not comment on the relationship between the two women.
