POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — Police say a southern Idaho woman who was stabbed several times is expected to survive, and a man has been arrested in connection with the stabbing.

The Pocatello Police Department tells the Idaho State Journal that the woman was stabbed by an acquaintance at her Pocatello home Saturday night. The woman's name was not released, but police say she was in critical condition at a Salt Lake Hospital on Monday.

Twenty-nine-year-old Steven Skylar Drain was arrested on suspicion of aggravated battery Sunday afternoon. Online court records did not show on Tuesday if he has been formally charged or if he has obtained an attorney.
