Brookfield police continue to search for a 25-year-old woman they say stabbed a man inside a home in the 4400 block of Madison Avenue on the afternoon of April 11.
Police have not released many details about the incident, but Police Chief Michael Kuruvilla told the Landmark that investigators had been able to interview the victim, who remained hospitalized as of the morning of April 12, but whose injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
According to Kuruvilla, the victim lived at the residence and had some type of relationship with the alleged offender. The stabbing stemmed from what police called a domestic altercation. Police reported recovering a knife from the scene.
Police say they have identified a specific suspect, but she remained at large as of noon on April 12.
It is unclear who notified police of the stabbing, but someone called shortly before 3 p.m. to report the incident and police requested soft lockdowns at both nearby Congress Park School, which is in the 4300 block of Madison Avenue, and Lincoln School, which is also on the south end of the village.
Officers from Brookfield and surrounding municipalities established a perimeter around the area and used dogs and drones to search for the offender, without success. Police called off the manhunt at about 5:30 p.m., but Madison Avenue remained closed to vehicles at Congress Park Avenue and two officers remained stationed outside the residence at 4405 Madison Ave.
