An Iron Mountain woman was stabbed several times while working in a Krist Oil Convenience store Friday evening.

According to the Iron Mountain Police Department, the 22-year-old female clerk was stabbed several times with a knife by a 15-year-old male suspect. After stabbing the clerk, the juvenile male suspect fled from the store on foot. A very short time later, the suspect was taken into custody inside the McDonald’s restaurant located across US-2 from the convenience store.

The 22 year old victim was treated for her injuries and released from the hospital.
