Burlington, VT — Burlington Police are looking for a man who was allegedly involved in an incident at Battery Park that left two women with stab wounds.

Police say a 35-year-old woman was stabbed in the chest, and her 59-year-old mother suffered hand lacerations.

Police initially were able to identify a suspect, who they say is known to the department, based on witness statements. But other witnesses gave conflicting stories about who wielded the knife and who was the aggressor. Police also say the mother recanted her initial statements.

Police say they are attempting to locate the man to interview him.

Investigations are ongoing and the case is being reviewed by BPD’s Domestic Violence Prevention Officer before it is sent to the State’s Attorney’s office.
