Woman stabbed 

A woman stabbed another woman Sunday in the 1700 block of Utah. Police said they arrived at the home around 2:05 a.m. on a possible stabbing call. They encountered a woman who told them she was home when another woman showed up for an unknown reason. Police said the two women apparently have ill feelings toward each other. A verbal altercation then ensued, which quickly turned physical. According to police, one pulled a knife and stabbed the other woman in the shoulder and then cut her on the arm before she fled the scene. The stabbed woman was transported to Hermann Hospital to be treated for her injuries. 

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office accepted charges of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and subsequently filed on 27-year-old Vera Crawley of Baytown. Crawley was arrested Monday and is currently in custody.
