A woman believed to be aged in her 70s is dead after being stabbed in south Minneapolis. 

The attack was reported at 9:40 a.m. in the area of S. Chicago Ave. and E. Franklin Ave., with Metro Transit police officers first on the scene to find the victim in grave condition from "stab wounds," Minneapolis PD said in a release. 

The woman died a short time after being transported to Hennepin County Medical Center. 

The woman's identity has not been released and the suspect fled the scene before police arrived. 

Homicide detectives are working the case, with MPD noting that they are "looking to see if the stabbing is related to any other crimes in the area."
