An injured, naked woman was found outdoors in midtown Omaha on Monday and taken to the Nebraska Medical Center, said Officer Phil Anson, a police spokesman.
The 24-year-old woman told police that she had been stabbed and burned by her boyfriend, he said.
The woman was found about 5:30 p.m. near Park Avenue and Pacific Street.
She had four stab wounds to her leg and had been scalded by boiling water that had been thrown on her, she told police.
Police were searching for the 45-year-old man Monday night, Anson said.
