Riverhead (WALK) - There's a manhunt under way in Suffolk for a man who allegedly stabbed his girlfriend during an argument at a popular local shopping center over the weekend.
Riverhead Town Police found the 23-year-old victim at a house on Midway Drive in Riverhead after getting a 911 call just after 8 PM Saturday night. The woman told police that Paul Thompson Jr. had stabbed her several times after the two argued at the nearby Tanger Outlet Center, then forced her to get behind the wheel and drive him to the area around Midway Drive.
At that point, the woman escaped and went to a house to seek help. The homeowners called police, and she was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center for treatment. There is no word on her condition right now.
Detectives are asking for help to locate Thompson, 24, whose last known address was on Wooded Way in Calverton. They believe he also has ties to the Mastic Beach area.
Anyone with information about Thompson's whereabouts is asked to contact Riverhead Town Police at (631) 727-4500 extension 289.
