LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man is accused of stabbing his wife multiple times inside their Middletown apartment.

Haris Sefo, 31, was taken to Metro Corrections and charged with assault after stabbing his wife repeatedly all over her body on Wednedsay, according to Louisville Metro Police. The victim was rushed to a hospital where she remained in critical condition Thursday night.

Police said Sefo beat his wife in the face and chest, and when he was done, he grabbed a knife and stabbed her numerous times in the torso, back and arms. The police report says Sefo's hand was cut sometime during the attack and that he regained control of the weapon to deliver a near-fatal blow. The report also says Sefo jammed the knife all the way through his wife's neck and left it there.

Sefo allegedly called his family to help instead of calling police.

Neighbors in the LaFontenay/Shelby Crossing Apartment complex of Shelbyville Road, where the attack happened, said the area is quiet and upscale -- a community mostly made up of condo owners.

"Living here in Middletown,  I've always felt safe," said Laura Brown. "I grew up in this area, and now I'm just really unhappy to hear that this has happened in my community."

One neighbor said she is taking precautions for her safety. "I mean, it honestly kind of scared me," said Jennifer Pierce. "We've got a storm door, but we've actually started locking it. We always lock our main door, but now we're locking the storm doors."
