Annapolis, MD – A woman was arrested after she allegedly stabbed her relative in the neck with a serving fork, according to the New York Daily News.
The incident happened on Thanksgiving Day after 27-year-old Shenika Allsup got into a heated argument with her younger half-brother Deonte Antionio Wallace. Although the exchange started out with angry words, things soon took a violent turn for the worse.
Instead of agreeing to disagree, Allsup grabbed a nearby serving fork and stuck it in her brother’s neck. Not surprisingly, police were soon summoned to the scene of the crime.
The Baltimore Sun reports that officers who responded to the call found Wallace standing in the parking lot with bloodstains on his shirt. Police also noticed some nasty stab wounds on his neck. A quick search of the apartment revealed an additional collection of bloodstains.
Wallace was later taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center for treatment. Authorities believe that the injuries he received when Allsup stabbed him in the neck with a serving fork are not life threatening.
The alleged stabber has been charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. A judge set the woman’s bail at a whopping $1 million.
Sadly, this isn’t the only stabbing that took place on Thanksgiving Day around the country. According to The Baltimore Sun, another Maryland resident was reportedly stabbed by two individuals on the eve of Thanksgiving. While one suspect has been apprehended, the other remains at large.
FOX 31 reports that a Denver, Colorado man was fatally stabbed on Thanksgiving morning. Shortly before passing away, the victim positively identified his attackers. Both suspects are currently being held on murder charges for their respective roles in the Thanksgiving Day stabbing.
