Authorities in Montgomery County have identified the suspect wanted in an attempted murder of a Hatfield woman early Sunday morning.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for 49-year-old Thomas Troy Young. Young is charged with Criminal Attempt Murder, Aggravated Assault, Recklessly Endangering Another Person, and related offenses.

Young was last seen driving a black 2009 Honda Accord bearing PA registration GKS-8099.

Police say the victim is a relative of Young's.

At 12:38 a.m., Hatfield Township police responded to the 300 block of Wheatfield Circle in Hatfield Borough for the report of an assault.

Responding officers found the 33-year-old victim suffering wounds from a knife.

She was flown to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for treatment.

The hospital is not releasing any information on her condition.

An infant, who was apparently in the home during the attack, was released to people who appeared to be family members.

Neighbors in the quiet townhome development tell Action News that many people live in the house where the attack occurred and that a woman, believed to be the victim, was seen walking a baby in a stroller outside yesterday.

Anyone who may know the whereabouts of Thomas Young is asked to contact police.
