The 44-year-old told investigators she was confronted by a female acquaintance demanding money about 4:30 a.m. in the 600 block of South Pulaski Avenue, Chicago police said.

She tried to get away and went inside a store on that block, but the person followed her, police said.

Inside the store, she demanded money again and stabbed her three times on the top of her head and once in the lip, police said.

She was taken to a hospital and her condition was stabilized, police said. The other woman ran and is not in custody.
