Woman stabs man on Father’s Day | THE DAILY HERALD

PHILIPSBURG–A worker from a popular bar in Sucker Garden was arrested by police on Father’s Day, Sunday, for stabbing a customer in his left hand.

The police reported on Monday that the “ill-treatment with a weapon” case took place at 1:00pm and investigating officers on their arrival encountered a woman whose clothing was covered with blood. The officers also noticed evidence of blood on the floor of the establishment.

This woman stated that she works at the bar and was busy doing her work when a man unknown to her walked into the establishment and started causing problems. The situation got out of hand, at which point it turned into a fight between the individuals. The bartender also stated that this man struck her several times in the face. Police said the woman told investigators that she had taken a knife and defended herself by stabbing the man in his left hand. After stabbing the man, she ran out of the bar.

The victim had reported to St. Maarten Medical Center for treatment.
