On Tuesday evening, a woman in Indianapolis attempted to stab a dog with a knife; however, she wound up stabbing her 1-year-old niece instead.
Just after 11 p.m., a dog grabbed the 32-year-old woman’s sandwich. This occured inside of a hotel with the woman’s sister and her children, police say.
She was attempting to stab the dog in order to get her sandwich back.
The mother of the young child wasn’t in the room when her daughter was stabbed. She quickly called authorities, and the suspect left the scene.
When officers arrived, they located the suspect, close to a bush and apprehended her for criminal recklessness after communicating with the county prosecutors.
The 1-year-old was transported to a medical facility in critical condition but is now in serious condition. However, she is expected to survive. Reports indicate that she has a fractured skull and required stitches in her ear.
The suspect was later arrested and identified as 32 year old Sharon Key. She was charged with criminal recklessness.
