A 32-year-old woman was stabbed by a purse thief on Aug. 16., said Greater Sudbury Police Service.

She was walking with a male friend on Louis Street near St. Joseph Street around 9:30 p.m. They were approached by another couple, with the man brandishing a knife. The woman suspect grabbed the victim's purse. The victim fought back, but was pushed to the ground, kicked and then stabbed in the left side.
