A Richmond woman has been arrested and charged with attempted murder.
On Sunday just before 10 p.m., officers were dispatched to an apartment in the 100 block of Mallory Court to investigate a reported stabbing. Upon arrival, officers discovered an 18-year-old female victim suffering from multiple stab wounds to her abdomen and left leg.
Police determined that the victim had been involved in a physical altercation with Misty D. Riddell, 19, Summer Glen Court, prior to the arrival of police. During the fight, police say Riddell apparently pepper sprayed the victim and then stabbed her multiple times with a knife that she had acquired just prior to the altercation.
The victim was transported to the UK Medical Center where she underwent surgery and was listed in stable condition. Riddell was treated for minor injuries at Pattie A. Clay ER and released.
Riddell was charged for attempted murder and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
