Police say the woman was riding a bicycle along Flagler Drive and Okeechobee Boulevard, under the bridge, at about 11 a.m. when a man pushed her off the bicycle and stabbed her.

The suspect fled on foot and is still at large.

The victim was hospitalized and was last listed in stable condition.

"The detectives have been interviewing her at the hospital so we have been able to communicate with her, thankfully," said West Palm Beach Police Public Information Officer Davide Lefont.

West Palm Beach police released a photo of a possible person of interest Monday. However, you could not make out the person's facial features in the picture.

"The photo that we're sending out is a person of interest that we believe was involved in this case. Once that person is identified we will definitely let you know," Lefont said.

They now believe the attack started as a robbery attempt.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to call West Palm Beach police at 561-822-1900 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
