LA GRANGE, Ky. (WAVE) - Charges are pending against a man after his alleged involvement in a stabbing at a La Grange Walmart Wednesday afternoon. The victim, a woman, was transported to UofL Hospital with injuries.

The suspect is revealed to have fled in a Kia sedan, leading to a brief police chase. He was halted using stop sticks and ultimately hit an officer and a cruiser with his car before he was apprehended in the 1100 block of Commerce Parkway.

The stabbing victim and the suspect were transported separately by Oldham County EMS to UofL Hospital for treatment.

Collett said the pair are believed to know each other, but the extent of their relationship has not been revealed.
