An Elizabethtown woman faces a felony assault charge after police say she stabbed a friend with a knife.
Chrishonda R. Squire, 21, was arrested early Tuesday morning on a charge of second-degree assault.
According to a citation, Elizabethtown officers responded to an apartment on West Circle Drive in regard to “an assault with a knife.”
Squire and the injured woman told officers Squire stabbed her, according to police. Squire said the act was unintentional.
Police observed “a small cut” on the woman’s left shoulder and a knife was found in the kitchen sink, according to the citation.
Squire remains lodged at Hardin County Detention Center in lieu of a $25,000 cash bond. She was arraigned Wednesday via video feed in Hardin District Court and is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing Jan. 11.
At the time of the offense, Squire was free on an unsecured bond for a separate felony case, according to records.
Court documents show Squire was arrested Dec. 15 on charges of first-degree possession of a controlled substance-cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
She was released two days later and is scheduled to appear Jan. 25 for a preliminary hearing in district court.
According to Kentucky Revised Statutes, second-degree assault is a Class C felony, which is punishable by five to 10 years in prison if found guilty.
