SALISBURY — A local woman is accused of stabbing her former girlfriend multiple times after the woman brought a new girlfriend to their former apartment.
Police charged Lottie Mae Cunningham, 37, with assault with a deadly weapon.
Police said Lashelle Marqueta Miller brought a new girlfriend to the apartment and Cunningham became angered Saturday at Brookview Apartments.
Cunningham grabbed a serrated kitchen knife and stabbed Miller in the face, neck, shoulder and chest, according to a police report.
When officers tried to arrest Cunningham, she was holding a small bag of marijuana in her clenched fist, the report said. They also found a silver smoking device on her.
Police said Cunningham tried to steal Miller’s personal information, including her ID.
Cunningham was released from the Rowan County Detention Center.
