A Duluth woman is in custody and a man is recovering after a stabbing Wednesday morning.

The incident happened at about 11:20 a.m. in the 1200 block of East 5th Street.  The Duluth Police Department says officers responded to a report of a man and woman physically fighting outside.

Police say the 24-year-old man had a stab wound to his stomach but was being uncooperative.  The man was restrained and taken to a hospital for treatment of his injury, which is not life-threatening.

Investigators with a search warrant searched a residence and found a knife believed to have been used in the stabbing.  A 23-year-old woman was arrested on possible charges of second-degree assault and fifth-degree domestic assault.
