A woman was rushed to the hospital after being beaten and stabbed by her boyfriend early Sunday morning in Round Lake Beach, police said.

Round Lake Beach Deputy Police Chief Wayne Wilde Jr. said officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driving erratically around 2:24 a.m. Sunday in the 1600 block of North Cedar Lake Road.

The vehicle pulled over in the Domino’s Pizza parking lot in the 300 block of Rollins Road, Wilde said.

The 31-year-old male driver said he was called by a female friend, who told him that she had been beaten and dropped off in the Domino’s parking lot.

Officers searched and located the 36-year-old female victim in the parking lot. She was suffering from a stab wound in the abdominal area, Wilde said.
