A 49-year-old woman is accused of slashing a man in the hand with a butcher’s knife during an argument on North Washington Street very early this morning.

Police said Tammy Drake, of 406 N. Washington St., was in an argument with a man at her residence at about 2 a.m. today. Police said Drake started smashing property inside the residence, including a fish tank.

Police said Drake picked up a knife in the kitchen and swung it at the man, who attempted to block the attack with his arms and got slashed in the left hand. The victim was then able to disarm Drake. She is charged with one count each of third-degree assault and fourth-degree mischief, police stated. She is scheduled to appear in City Court.
