Port Angeles police officers arrested Earnestine Perry for investigation of one count of second-degree assault after she allegedly stabbed another woman in the head and shoulder in the alleged victim’s apartment in the 100 block of West First Street, according to police reports of the incident.
Officers arrived at the apartment to find the woman had been cut on the back of her head and above her left collarbone, and had suffered several scratches on her hand.
The woman told police a serrated knife found in her sink was the one used in the attack.
Perry, who was found in the woman’s apartment, told police she’d had an argument with the alleged victim but denied attacking her with a knife, according to the police report.
Perry told police the alleged victim had fallen backward during the argument, causing her injuries.
The woman was treated for injuries at Olympic Medical Center.
