Pontiac Police continue to investigate a stabbing incident that occurred early Tuesday morning. Details of the incident haven’t been released, but police do say that a call for medical aid called police officers to 303 W. North Street. A 76-year-old woman needed assistance for a stab wound to her neck. Also in the home was a 52-year-old woman who was in a nearby bathroom and unresponsive. Both women were taken to OSF St. James-John W. Albrecht medical center for treatment, where they were both admitted. Because the identities of the two women haven’t been released, information isn’t available on their current condition. When initially admitted, however, the older woman was reported in stable condition, while the younger was reportedly in much more serious condition and admitted to intensive care. There are reports that one of the women was later transferred to a Bloomington hospital, but, again, specifics aren’t currently available. Major Dan Davis of the Pontiac police department says more information will be provided after the women have been interviewed by police, but their medical conditions haven’t allowed that up to this point. The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department and the Illinois State Police Crime Scene services are assisting in the investigation, which is ongoing.
