CINCINNATI — A woman is in critical condition after police said she was stabbed at a Cincinnati park.

Officers responded to Gilday Riverside Park around 2:30 p.m. Friday after receiving multiple 911 calls reporting a man stabbing a woman near the playground.

Clayton Raines has been charged with felonious assault and resisting arrest in connection with the incident. Cincinnati Police said an officer tased Raines because he was not complying with commands.

According to court documents, Raines stabbed his wife at least 20 times, causing life-threatening injuries.

He was taken into custody, while his wife was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center in critical condition.

Police said the stabbing was a domestic incident.

"We are thankful for those park patrons who called 911 when they witnessed the incident," police spokesperson Emily Szink said. "This allowed our officers and Cincy Fire to quickly arrive on scene to render aid."

The incident is under investigation. Charges are pending.
