A man wanted for attempted murder after a violent attack in St. Catharines is now in police custody.

Officers found an injured woman on the street outside of the home. She was airlifted to Toronto in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.

Police say a man was seen fleeing the scene in a stolen vehicle. Cst. Phil Gavin warned residents in a Twitter video not to approach the suspect but to call 9-1-1 immediately.
