Police have arrested a woman after a female employee was stabbed at a Woolworths store on Tuesday.

The victim, a woman in her forties, was rushed to the Royal Perth Hospital at around 12:55pm local time in Western Australia (2:55pm Australian time on the east coast).

The alleged attacker then fled on foot, but was later apprehended by police.

The incident happened in the pet food aisle of the store, which is now a crime scene.

Forensic police officers have put up screens in aisle 14, blocking entry while collecting evidence.

An employee of a nearby coffee shop said she heard no commotion and was shocked to learn that a woman had been stabbed.

“No one yelled or cried, we don’t know what happened,” she said The Western Australian.

A Woolworths spokesperson said it is “providing full support to the team member and their loved ones at this time.”

“We will also advise other team members, and we will assist the police where necessary,” he said.

Police immediately launched an investigation into the incident, which took place at the supermarket’s Ellenbrook Central branch, in Perth’s northeastern suburbs.

They would like to get in touch with anyone who has seen a woman run away from the shopping area around the time of the incident or has mobile footage of the incident or seen the woman run away.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000 or report the information online at: www.crimestopperswa.com.au.

Police would like to contact anyone who saw a woman running out of the shopping area around the time of the incident.  Pictured are police officers in Perth
