Police are trying to find a young girl and her father who may have been victims of an attempted stabbing near Lambeau Field after Sunday's game. 

According to a news release from police, at approximately 3:44 PM as fans were departing from the Packer game, Green Bay Police Officers were dispatched to the 1200 blk of Thorndale St for a male subject brandishing a large knife and attempting to stab a young female. This happened within two blocks of Lambeau Field.

Police say officers were able to arrest a 17-year-old boy who they say had admitted being involved. The male lived in the area and was subdued by family members. The knife was recovered and police say one of the family members that stopped the suspect sustained a non-life threating injury.

In the investigation of the incident, officers were unable to identify the juvenile female victim or her father who was a witness to the attack. Witnesses told police the young girl and her father were very scared and drove off before officers arrived.

Green Bay Police are asking for the victim and victim’s father to contact the police and for any possible witnesses to this incident.

The 17 year old suspect in this case was transported to a hospital for evaluation. Police don't know if the girl was injured. The Green Bay Police Department is looking to identify the girl and her father, wishing to ensure they were not injured in this incident.
