An Auburn woman is facing criminal charges for allegedly stabbing a man Friday morning.
Amandalus D. Lane, 41, 101 Quill Ave., Apt. K60, was charged with second-degree assault, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child. Auburn Police Department Capt. James Moore said Friday that officers were dispatched to a domestic incident at 12:19 a.m. at Oak Creek Town Homes.
A 48-year-old man had called 911 but the call had been disconnected, Moore said. Once the officers arrived at Lane's residence, they knocked on the door several times but received no answer. Moore said the officers noticed an open cell phone and butcher knife through a window and "felt the need" to enter the residence based on the circumstances.
Officers saw Lane and the victim, who had a stab wound from a butcher knife on the left side of his chest, Moore said. The man was treated at the scene and then taken for further medical treatment. A child was also at the scene.
Lane was arraigned at Auburn City Court Friday morning and released on her own recognizance. Her next day in court is Feb. 13.
