Witnesses stop stabbing, woman in critical condition

Clearwater, Florida -- A woman is in critical condition Tuesday after two witnesses stopped her ex-boyfriend from stabbing her to death.

Clearwater Police say the attack happened around 3:17 a.m. The witnesses reportedly stopped 20-year-old Robert Burton as he attacked Melissa Dohme in the 300 block of the Glenwood subdivision. Burton then fled the scene in a car.

Arriving officers found Dohme in the street with multiple stab wounds.  She was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

Around 7 a.m., Clearwater Police found Burton after he crashed his car in Hudson. Investigators believe he overdosed on unknown pills. Burton was taken to Bayonet Point Hospital, and is expected to recover. He will be extradited to Pinellas County Jail and charged with attempted murder.
