A Spring Garden Township woman is accused of stabbing her husband after he thought she had drank enough that night, according to police.

Williams, of the 600 block of Ridge Avenue, is charged with aggravated assault and simple assault.

Alleged assault: Police were sent to the couple's home about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18, after their daughter called 911, according to police.

When they arrived, her 60-year-old husband was holding Williams on the ground, and there was a knife in the kitchen sink, charging documents allege.

Her husband told police that while the two were in the kitchen, Williams tried to get more vodka, but he told her she had drank enough, police said. 

She then grabbed a serrated knife from the knife set on the counter and went toward him, but he was able to deflect her arm enough that she was only able to cut the left side of his neck, court documents state. 

Police say he then wrestled the knife away from her and put her on the ground until police arrived.

Her husband was treated at the scene, according to police.

Williams was arraigned on the charges Thursday, Oct. 19, and she remains free after posting $25,000 bail.

A phone number could not be found for her, and she does not have an attorney listed.

Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Dec. 7 at District Judge Jennifer J.P. Clancy's office.
