A woman was stabbed to death late Friday afternoon in domestic dispute on a street in south Fort Worth, police said.

The woman’s family had not been notified so her name was not immediately released, said Officer Daniel Segura, a police spokesman.

A man suspected of stabbing her was in police custody Friday, Segura said.

The incident was reported at 4:49 p.m. at the intersection of Bryan Avenue and East Cantey Street, police records show.

“Officers found the victim, an unidentified Hispanic female, lying next to the roadway with an apparent wound to her abdomen,” Segura said. “The suspect was observed leaning over victim and was immediately placed into handcuffs.”

Segura said a MedStar ambulance took the woman to John Peter Smith Hospital, but “she succumbed to her injuries a short time later.”

“The investigation,” Segura said, “revealed that the victim and suspect were in the suspect’s vehicle having a domestic dispute when the suspect produced a knife and stabbed the victim in the abdomen.”

No other information was available Friday.
