PUNTA GORDA, FL. - Police say a Charlotte County woman survived a brutal attack when her roommate tried to kill her.

The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office says 19-year-old Michael See stabbed his 23-year-old roommate in the face, neck and one eye in the home they shared in Punta Gorda.

Authorities aren't saying why he attacked her, and they are not yet releasing her name. She is now in stable condition at Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers. Detectives say she will remain in the hospital several days due to her injuries.

CCSO K9 units, deputies, Aviation helicopter and detectives responded and attempted to locate See through most of the night. A deputy spotted See in the area of Pepper Road and Olive Circle and he was taken into custody without incident.

Detectives interviewed See and then arrested him on the Attempted Murder charge. He was taken to the Charlotte County Jail where he remains on no bond.
