Woman Arrested After Two People Stabbed During Easter Gathering
A woman was arrested on Sunday in Battle Creek after she allegedly stabbed two people during Easter dinner.
The Battle Creek Enquirer says Battle Creek Police Officers responded to the first block of Boulder St. around 4pm Sunday to find a 30-year-old woman and 37-year-old man suffering from multiple stab wounds; according to the victims, they had been inside the home for an Easter family gathering, when a woman came inside and asked for money. Those inside said no, leading to the woman yelling and swearing and leaving to a nearby house.
When the victims approached her about using coarse language in front of children, the suspect allegedly took out a knife and began stabbing the younger woman; when the man tried to intervene, he was stabbed as well. Police tracked down the woman, and she said the victims actually assaulted her and she was just defending herself. The suspect had a cut to her forehead, but police say they think the cut was self-inflicted.
All three people were taken to the hospital, and then the 37-year-old woman was taken to the jail on charges of felonious assault.
