Annie Smallwood was arrested for first-degree assault. She's being held for the felony at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center on no bail.
At 9:32 p.m. Wednesday, a woman called police to report her boyfriend had been stabbed in the chest and leg by an unknown female.
Smallwood allegedly entered the apartment, in the 9300 block of Glacier Highway, and confronted the man about a domestic issue with his girlfriend, Sgt. David Campbell said.
Smallwood and the man did not have a previous relationship. But Smallwood "started getting in the victim's face about how he was treating his girlfriend," Campbell said.
The man backed away and tripped. As the man was laying on the ground, Smallwood allegedly knelt over him and stabbed him once in the upper right chest. She then reportedly stabbed him once in the right thigh before leaving the apartment, Campbell said.
Smallwood was apprehended by police as she left an adjacent apartment. Police discovered a bloody knife in that home.
The man was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital and treated for various injuries, including a collapsed lung. He was conscious and able to talk to police on Thursday.
Smallwood and the man had been drinking, police said.
