Yonkers police searched Thursday afternoon for a man who stabbed his girlfriend 10 times when a domestic dispute turned violent Wednesday night, police said.

The attack happened about 11:20 p.m. on the second floor of a home at 100 Clinton Pl., police said. Firefighters stationed around the corner on Vark Street were the first ones to treat the woman. The 22-year-old was stabbed in the face, head and leg, the firefighters told News12.

The woman was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, where she is in critical but stable condition. Her injuries are not considered life-threatening, police said.

Police have been called to the house on numerous occasions, a neighbor told News12. "Recently cops were called like four times to come here. I believe 16 cops were out here just for this one couple. It's ridiculous," Jenene Perez said.

The victim's boyfriend fled the scene in a taxicab, police say. The victim is not being cooperative, police said, but investigators have identified a suspect. Police are following several leads, but no arrests have been made.
