According to Redding Police, this happened about 10:45 p.m., on 333 Boulder Creek Drive in Redding.

Medics were requested for the non-life threatening wound to his lower torso and the victim was later taken to Mercy Medical Center.

The victim said he had never met her before and did not know who she was.

Cloudy skies and very light scattered showers are lingering across northern California for the start of your Wednesday, but we'll be clearing out and warming up Wednesday afternoon. We'll be sunny and warmer on Thursday, but clouds will increase Friday. More showers are looking likely Friday night into Saturday, but we'll dry out again for Halloween on Sunday.
