SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — An elderly woman is in serious condition after having been stabbed multiple times in her face and head, authorities say.

Officers were summoned to a residence on Abilene Street between Fairfield and Thornhill avenues at 5:29 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 22, Caddo 911 dispatch records show.

The call about an armed person came in when someone arrived to visit the woman and heard screaming inside the house, authorities said.

That drew as many as 17 police units and three Fire Department units to Abilene.

Police forced their way into the house and took a man into custody.
