A woman has been charged in connection with a slashing that occurred over an argument about $20.
It happened back in July when a man appeared at the hospital with a cut to his hand, but reported that it was accidental. As it turns out he was attempting to protect the woman that had attacked him. Mishawaka Police say it happened after the victim had been paid for cleaning a house and had gone to an apartment on Island View Lane.
That’s where he was accosted by Charlotte Griffin for $20 cash, and when he refused she grabbed a pocket knife and swung it at him. It was Griffin’s son that first talked to investigators, and Griffin later told them that everyone in the incident had been drinking at the time.
ABC 57 reports she is facing one count of battery by means of a deadly weapon.
