POTTSTOWN, PA — Pottstown police released details of Tuesday night’s stabbing on Queen Street that left a Pottstown woman hospitalized, including confirmation that the woman was found lying in the street where she apparently collapsed after being stabbed, police said.
Lissette Lopez, 42, was inside her residence at 685 Queen St., watching television in her bedroom when she was assaulted shortly before 11 p.m., according to investigators.
Pottstown Detective Cpl. Barry Grimm said a police officer was in the area at the time the stabbing was reported to police and was able to make it to the scene very soon after the call came in. The incident was initially dispatched as a “possible domestic,” and responding officers found Lopez in the street having suffered from stab wounds. Grimm said Lopez’s juvenile daughter and a third party, her daughter’s friend, were outside with her.
Grimm said the woman was conscious at the scene and transported by Goodwill Ambulance to Reading Hospital and Medical Center.
