Toronto police say a woman was stabbed in the head and face while riding a streetcar in the city today and another woman has been arrested in the case.

They say police received a call around 2 p.m. for a stabbing on a streetcar near Spadina Avenue and Sussex Avenue and found a woman in her 20s suffering from multiple stab wounds.

Police say she was taken to hospital and is in stable, non-life-threatening condition.

They say a suspect, a woman in her 40s, was arrested at the scene and will face one count of aggravated assault.
