HIGH SPRINGS, Fla. (WCJB) — A Lake City woman was arrested Friday after Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputies said she stabbed a man with a knife.
According to the arrest report, deputies responded to a call about a stabbing at a home in High Springs. When they arrived, the victim told deputies that Nicole Faith Perry, 25, was arguing with him.
During the argument, Perry ran toward the victim and punched him twice. She pulled out a knife and attempted to swing the knife at him but missed. Perry blocked the victim’s only way out of the room and charged at him again with the knife, stabbing him in the left shoulder. She also stabbed him above his left eye and left the home.
The entire incident was recorded on the victim’s cell phone.
