Texarkana Woman Arrested After Fight Leaves Another Cut
Texarkana Texas Police say a disturbance between two local women escalated into violence when one of the two involved produced a knife and cut the other person with it.
Authorities say they arrested 26 year old Kaneicia Ellis late Monday night and charged her with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, after she was involved in a fight with another woman in the 1600 block of Peach Street.
Texas side police say there were differing accounts about who actually started the fight. However, at some point during it, Ellis allegedly went to get a knife out of her car and managed to cut the other woman's face and head several times while swinging the knife around. The victim was treated at the hospital with non-life threatening injuries that required several stitches.
Ellis' bond was set at $100,000 by a judge this morning. She is being held in the Bi-State Jail.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing according to Texarkana Texas Police.
