NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio — A 34-year-old Lakewood woman was ordered by the court to undergo a mental evaluation after she was arrested Tuesday afternoon for allegedly stabbing her 69-year-old father and 67-year-old mother multiple times.

It happened in the 6600 block of Amber Way around 4:30 p.m.

According to the North Ridgeville Police Department, responding officers located the two victims, who had both sustained serious injuries from the attack. They were both transported to a local hospital for treatment. Their conditions are unknown.

Police said the woman chased her father of the home while attempting to stab him.

She was later found on Wildlife Trail and arrested. Following her arrest, she was also transported to the hospital for treatment of "injuries she sustained from stabbing her parents," police said.

The woman has been charged with felonious assault and attempted murder.

She is being held without bond and was ordered in court Wednesday to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

Her next court date is tentative pending the outcome of the evaluation.
