A woman was attacked and stabbed in the face while walking to her car in a parking lot in Vernon Tuesday.
The victim had just left a business in the Tri-City Plaza at 35 Talcottville Road around 8:50 p.m. when a woman attacked her, according to police. She was walking to her car near Staples and Dress Barn when the incident happened, police said.
A man was with the attacker and both appeared to be in their 20s, the victim told police. The female suspect hit the victim in the face and stabbed her with a small screwdriver, before jumping in a car and taking off. The vehicle is described as a late 1990s black Honda Civic with a loud exhaust and possibly had a lowered suspension.
The pair were not able to steal anything from the victim.
The victim suffered a minor injury to her face. She was treated at the scene, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Mike Patrizz of the Vernon Police Department at 860-872-9126.
