HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - Hartford police are looking for a man accused of repeatedly stabbing a woman, then kidnapping her son before police in Massachusetts found him. 

Tonight, family members are sharing updates on the victim and her young son. 

The family share two important updates - the boy is fine and back with family tonight. The other - his mom finished six hours of surgery but still has a long road ahead to recovery.

"Leaving her for dead, having her run to other people on new year's to ask for help - who's very helpless. How can you do that," a family member said Tuesday.

"You left a kid, you know, without a parent in a car. You stabbed a woman. In front of her child."

Police were dispatched to Natick Street just before 2 a.m. for the report of a woman covered in blood and screaming for help.

When police arrived, they immediately began life-saving measures on the woman.

According to police, the victim and her 6-year-old son were in a car with the suspect when she was stabbed.

The suspect fled with the victim’s son. The child is from a previous relationship.

A nationwide alert was placed on the car’s registration and the child was entered into a nationwide database as missing and endangered.

The child was found around 5:30 a.m. in Worcester, Massachusetts.

The boy was unharmed, but brought to a local hospital for evaluation.

The suspect has not been located.

The woman suffered over 30 stab wounds and underwent emergency surgery.

Police said the mother is in critical, but stable condition.
