HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Authorities said a woman stabbed a man inside in an SUV in Henrico County Sunday morning.

Police said the incident played out on the roadway. Officers found the victim sitting in a vehicle in the left lane.

That victim was transported to VCU Medical Center with what were described as serious injuries.

Police said the female suspect fled the scene. She was arrested in the parking lot of a nearby business.

Dolly Tsilis was headed to Flea Market Floozies, Little Shop of Hoarders on Brook Road when she realized she forgot something and headed back home.

"Before I did, I saw all these cops had flown by,” Tsilis said.

As Tsilis pulled out, she noticed more than a dozen police cruisers on Brook Road.

Tsilis drove past the scene where the stabbing victim was found inside an SUV.

“And I looked over the left and there was a blue SUV and its sliding door was open," she said. "And you could just see blood down the side of it. It was strange because you couldn't see an accident or anything else going on. "

Tsilis went on with her day despite the bloody scene she encountered.

"You immediately think, 'Why did she flip out?'” she pondered. “But you don't know the whole thing, I don't know the whole thing.”

Police called the stabbing an isolated incident and said their investigation into the crime is ongoing.

Anyone with information that could help investigators is urged to call Henrico Police at 804-501-5000 or Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
