Fight between women leads to stabbing on East Side

YOUNGSTOWN — A woman, 26, was stabbed in the arm by another woman early Tuesday on Palmer Avenue on the South Side.

Police were called to the victim’s home, where she said she’d received three missed calls at about 12:35 a.m., from someone with whom she had been having problems in the past.

At 12:46 a.m., the she saw a black GMC Yukon in her driveway and then heard a knock at the door. She answered and the two women exchanged words.

Police were told the suspect dragged the victim off of the porch and into the yard, then went to her vehicle, grabbed a knife and stabbed the victim in the arm as the victim was trying to get back into her house.

The suspect then left the knife on a couch on the front porch and fled.

An officer saw that the victim had a large laceration on her upper arm. Her leg also was scraped from being dragged, a police report states. An ambulance took her to St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital for treatment.

Officers later went to an apartment building on Kendis Circle and found the vehicle the suspect was driving. It had blood on the center console. Officers knocked on her door but she refused to come out. The vehicle was towed.

As of Tuesday morning, no charges had been filed in Youngstown Municipal Court.
