JAMAICA, Queens (WABC) -- A 22-year-old woman was stabbed at least seven times by another woman in a Queens apartment building as the search continues for her attacker.

Officials say the stabbing happened at around 11:30 p.m. Monday on the 11th floor of The Crossing at Jamaica Station apartments.

The victim was rushed to the hospital after she was found with wounds to her torso, shoulder, and hands.

Police are still looking for the woman responsible for this stabbing. She was described as also in her 20s.

Investigators say the victim and the suspect are not related, but it is unclear if they knew each other.

It appears the victim was stabbed as soon as she opened her apartment door.

Residents at the apartments said they are troubled by what happened, but far from shocked. They say the problem isn't their neighbors, it's the people who don't live there.

The victim remains hospitalized and is said to be critical but stable. Investigators are continuing their search for the suspect and a possible motive.
