Abbotsford Police are investigating after a woman suffered serious injuries in a “domestic type” incident this morning (April 10), requiring a medevac to Vancouver.

Patrol officers were called to the scene at the 1700 Block of Clearbrook Road at 10:47 a.m. for a report of a woman in medical distress, said Const. Paul Walker, media relations officer with the Abbotsford Police Department

He said emergency responders found a 50-year-old woman on the street unconscious from her injuries, and transported her to Vancouver General Hospital via air ambulance.

Walker stated the incident was “not random,” and investigators suspect another party is involved who is known to the victim.

The extent and nature of the injuries have not been disclosed yet. Walker said patrol officers have handed the file over to APD’s Major Crimes Unit.

He said there is no risk to the public at this time.

Clearbrook Road was closed for several hours in both directions between Marshall and King roads.
