Police are still searching for a suspect in connection with the brutal stabbing of a 34-year-old mother of three earlier this month.

Police said, the victim, Emily Roberts, is still warded at hospital being treated for the injuries she sustained.

The incident took place on the morning of May 7, at her Crown Trace, Enterprise home.

The woman was seen running along the roadway, screaming for help before she collapsed.

The police and paramedics were notified and the wounded woman was rushed to  the Eric Williams Medical  Sciences Complex.

Roberts, police said, had been stabbed at least 10 times -  including twice to her stomach.

The suspect is said to be a male relative.
