York County dispatch received a call from a motorist around 11 p.m. on July 13th, reporting that a woman with blood dripping from her wrists was walking on the Colonial Parkway near the Indian Fields Creek pullout. Responding deputies came upon a woman near that location who claimed to be the victim’s friend. She said that her friend had cut herself on purpose and that she’d last been seen walking toward the York River. Rangers and deputies found the victim in the tree line near the river. The woman, who was unconscious but responsive to painful stimuli, had numerous cuts on her left wrist with arterial bleeding. She was taken to Mary Immaculate Hospital, where a ranger interviewed both her and her friend. The victim said that she’d cut herself because her friend had left her alone, that she had a history of being a cutter, and that she was not trying to commit suicide. She was held for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries and for mental evaluation.
