Stabbing: Police responded to the 700 block of West Market Street about 10 p.m. for a report of a stabbing.

When officials arrived, they found the victim bleeding from three lacerations, charging documents state.

Police say James confronted the victim outside their apartment complex and cut the woman.

The woman suffered two lacerations on her right forearm and another laceration on the top of her left arm, according to court documents.

James was seen running up the stairs to her apartment following the assault, police said. Court documents do not indicate what led to the alleged stabbing.


James was arrested at the scene, according to officials. She was taken to the county's central booking unit for arraignment.

She remains free after posting $25,000 bail. She does not have an attorney listed.

Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 21 at District Judge Joel Toluba's office.
