ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A fight between two women transitioned into a stabbing in Walnut Park East overnight. 

Around 1:00 a.m. on Friday, a 47 year-old woman was arguing with another woman around the same age. During their argument, a man who was with the second woman pushed the female victim down to the ground. 

Then, police said the male suspect produced a knife and stabbed the woman in the forearm. A witness arrived on the scene, which caused the suspects to flee the scene. The argument-turned-stabbing occurred at the intersection of Walnut Avenue and Lillian Avenue. 

The victim was transported to the hospital where she is currently in stable condition. Police said she suffered a severe laceration. 

The male victim is described as a man in his 30's with a thin build, while the female suspect stands around 5'4". 

The investigation of the stabbing is ongoing.
