Lehighton police are investigating a stabbing which occurred early this morning. Police were first dispatched to a report of a domestic dispute at 626 Coal St. just before 4 a.m. But soon after a family on Seventh Street reported a woman screaming for help that she had been stabbed. Police found the woman wandering near the scene. The victim was treated at the scene by Lehighton paramedics and immediately transported to the Lehigh Valley Hospital, Salisbury Township. Due to the heavy fog conditions no medical transport helicopters were available. A half hour later Palmerton police found the suspect and took him into custody. Family members of the victim stated at the scene the suspect was a former boyfriend who had just gotten out of jail. Lehighton police were assisted at the scene by Mahoning Township, Franklin Township and Palmerton police.
