TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The Leon County Sheriff’s Office says it arrested a 21-year-old woman after she cut someone with a knife who wanted to fight her over a money dispute.

LCSO says deputies responded to a Tallahassee emergency room, where the victim had knife wounds on their chest and neck. The injuries were non-life-threatening.

Witnesses at the hospital told deputies the victim was in an ongoing dispute with 21-year-old Teddkiya Sailor over money, the press release says.

“During the investigation, deputies learned the victim decided to confront Sailor at her residence after texting about the dispute and fighting,” the release says.

One of the people in the group who went to Sailor’s residence told her the victim was there to fight her. LCSO says Sailor then stepped back inside her home, closed the door, put on her shoes and armed herself with a serrated knife.

“Sailor then cut the victim across the neck and chest during the altercation,” the release says.

LCSO says Sailor did not lock her door or call 911. Deputies found the knife at a residence in the 3200 block of North Mission Road.

Sailor was arrested and taken to the Leon County Jail on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
