A woman in her 20s underwent emergency surgery after suffering several stab wounds Thursday afternoon in the 700 block of South Woodlawn in Derby.

A Wesley Medical Center operator said the woman was still in surgery a little before 9 p.m. and was in critical condition.

Scanner traffic indicated the suspect was a 24-year-old male who initially was believed to be heading south toward Arkansas City in a hijacked vehicle.

But the search then focused on an area near Kellogg Avenue and the Kansas Turnpike, where law enforcement were looking for the man in fields and businesses.
