FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A woman was taken to the hospital early Saturday after she was stabbed by a relative, according to Fort Collins Police Services (FCPS).

About 1 a.m., officers received a 911 call from a woman at 1220 E. Stuart St. who reported that she had been stabbed. That's not far from the intersection of South Lemay Avenue and East Stuart Street. The woman reported that she had locked herself in a bathroom to get away from the suspect, who was still inside the home.

When officers arrived, the woman left the residence and was transported to an area hospital with serious injuries, police said.

Officers found the male suspect inside the home with injuries that investigators thought were self-inflicted. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of moderate injuries, police said.

Both were expected to survive. Charges were pending against the man.

Detectives said that the two people involved were related to each other and said there was no threat to the community.
