One woman was behind bars this morning after she allegedly stabbed another woman over the weekend in the 100 block of Carver Street.
According to the LaGrange Police Department, an attacker stabbed Cynthia Green several times during a verbal altercation. When officers arrived on scene they found the suspect, 36-year-old Tangela Denise Hammett, allegedly standing on the porch of a home with a large kitchen knife in her hand. Officers told Hammett to drop the knife.
Hammett told officers Green had been verbally harassing her for some time, calling her names and saying her kids were ugly, according to a report. Hammett allegedly told officers she couldn’t take it anymore, found the knife on the porch and stabbed Green.
Green was transported to Columbus Medical Center for treatment. Her condition was unavailable this morning.
Hammett was taken to the Troup County Jail and charged with aggravated assault and possession of a knife during a crime.
