An Owings Mills man is fighting for his life after being stabbed by his girlfriend early Saturday morning.

Police say that it started as a verbal argument between a boyfriend and girlfriend that quickly escalated into physical violence, which ended when the girlfriend picked up a knife and stabbed her boyfriend multiple times in the upper body. She called 911 and the victim, a 37 year old man, was taken to an area hospital for treatment. He is currently in critical condition.

The suspect, a 33 year old woman, was immediately taken into custody.
