A Douglas County woman called 911 Monday night, reporting she had arrived home only to be attacked by a stranger. It was the second time deputies had been at her home that day.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office tells WOWT 6 News the woman was found injured. She told investigators she had been stabbed.
Investigators had been at the home only hours earlier, serving a warrant with the Nebraska Humane Society. The woman is suspected of killing her two dogs the week before.
Deputies say they are investigating "every potential angle" of the reported stabbing. They do not believe the public is at risk.
Paramedics took the woman to a hospital, where investigators plan to speak with her.
If deputies believed a suspect was truly dangerous and on the loose, the brutal cold could have stymied the investigation. According to early radio reports, it was too cold for the police helicopter's thermal camera to work properly.
