TWO INJURED IN FIGHT AT EDEN POINTE

A Warren County woman was in the county jail today as county officers tried to sort out the details of a fight at a county apartment complex that injured two people.

Connie Williams, 37, 818 Eden Pointe Apartments, was arrested on aggravated assault charges about 2:30 a.m. today, Detective Deputy Tim Williams said. She was being held without bond pending arraignment later today.

Detective Williams said Connie Williams is charged with stabbing Cedric McWilliams, 20, 817 Eden Pointe Apartments, in the back.

The preliminary investigation indicates Connie Williams and Cedric McWilliams argued late Thursday or early this morning. Later, she heard what she thought was someone cutting the tires on her car. She went outside to find she had two flats and a broken windshield.

She then confronted McWilliams, Detective Williams said, and that turned into the fight in which McWilliams was stabbed and Connie Williams suffered a broken arm from being hit with a chair.

Both Connie Williams and McWilliams were taken to ParkView Regional Medical Center for treatment. A hospital spokesman said Connie Williams was treated for a broken arm and released. McWilliams was admitted for treatment of his stab wound and was in stable condition this morning.
