HEMET - An 18-year-old woman suspected of stabbing a man following an argument in Hemet was being held on Friday, Sept. 28, in lieu of $25,000 bail.

Stephanie Andrea Jackson of Hemet was arrested Thursday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and booked into the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning.

According to Hemet police Lt. Nate Miller, Jackson and a 25-year-old casual acquaintance of the suspect, got into an argument Thursday morning.

After words were exchanged, the two apparently went their separate ways. However, about 6 p.m., Jackson confronted the man in the 1100 block of Rosalia Avenue, near Palm Avenue, and allegedly pulled a knife, stabbing him once, according to Miller.

He said the suspect fled the scene as the victim called for help.

The man, whose name was withheld, was taken to a trauma center and treated for a non-life-threatening puncture wound, according to the lieutenant.

Patrol officers searched the area and spotted Jackson, allegedly with the victim's blood on her, at which point she was arrested without incident, Miller said. He added that the weapon was seized.

There was no word on the nature of the conflict between Jackson and the victim.

She has no documented prior felony convictions in Riverside County.
