STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Stamford woman was charged with stabbing a male friend after they got into an argument over money that he owed her, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Police responded to a housing complex on Mohawk Court on Monday afternoon on a report of a man who had been stabbed in the chest, according to the Stamford Advocate. When they arrived, they found the 28-year-old man with a stabbing wound, the Stamford Advocate reported.

The man told police at first that he didn't know who had stabbed him, but then admitted that it was 23-year-old Reshawn Powell, a friend of his who had come over and confronted him about money that he owed her, according to the Stamford Advocate. They had gotten into a physical fight and punched each other before Powell grabbed a knife from the kitchen and stabbed the man in the chest, according to the Stamford Advocate.

The knife was stopped by the man's rib cage and the handle broke off, resulting in only a minor laceration, according to the Stamford Advocate. Powell then threw a dumbbell through a glass door and escaped, according to the Stamford Advocate.

After the man identified Powell as the person who stabbed him, they arrested her and charged her with first-degree assault, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and carrying a dangerous weapon, the Stamford Advocate reported.
