A lesbian woman has been released from the hospital after her lover stabbed her 17 times.

According to NTnews.com, a 21 year-old woman attacked her 23 year-old girlfriend on Wednesday morning (21 November) in the town of Alice Springs.

The attacker broke into the victim’s room around 12:25 AM and repeatedly stabbed her in the arms, shoulders and legs with two small kitchen knives.

Detective Sergeant Carmen Butcher told NTnews.com: ‘Any assault is concerning, but the weapons weren’t huge big butcher knives.’

‘The wounds were more like punctures than slashes and were unlikely to be life threatening’.

The victim is expected to be released from the hospital, while the attacker is expected to face charges including unlawful entry, reckless endangerment and intent to cause serious harm.
