BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — A Battle Creek woman has been jailed for felonious assault after stabbing her son and daughter at midday Saturday.

At 11:45 a.m. Saturday, Battle Creek police responded to a report of a stabbing with multiple victims in the first block of West Burnham. Upon arriving at the scene, officers determined there were two victims — a 29-year-old man and his 27-year-old sister.

The victims said that their 46-year-old mother, who does not live at the residence, came over very intoxicated, an argument ensued and the mother pulled a knife from her purse and began to “swing it around.”

The mother dropped the knife when police arrived.

Lifecare ambulance treated and released both victims at the scene.

The 46-year-old mother was taken into custody without incident and is being held on two counts of felonious assault.
