INDIANAPOLIS — A woman was arrested and is facing multiple charges after a Wednesday morning stabbing and afternoon pursuit, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

Police say a man was stabbed around 3 a.m. in the 3300 block of Watergate Road. He was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Around noon, police located the suspect vehicle at S. Alabama and E. Maryland Streets. When they tried to do a traffic stop, the woman fled and crashed into another vehicle at Shelby Street and East Morris Street.
