Woman wanted for cutting two at house party

Newnan authorities are on the lookout for a woman who allegedly cut two people with a knife during an argument at a house party Thursday morning.

Around 4:25 a.m., Officer Charles Beigle with Newnan Police Department responded to Piedmont Newnan Hospital in reference to an assault. According to Beigle, he met with one of the victims who told him how she and her husband were injured.

According to the victim, she and her husband were at a party on Richard Allen Drive, and her husband was tattooing people at the house. After giving one unidentified woman a tattoo, the woman apparently offered to pay the victim’s husband with sex. The victim then confronted the unidentified woman and all three got into an argument.

During this argument, the unidentified woman pulled out a knife and cut both the victim and her husband, Beigle said — the female victim was cut on the arm above her left wrist. The two victims then left the home and drove to the hospital.

The suspect was described by the victim as a short, overweight black woman with red hair, according to Beigle. She is wanted for the crime of aggravated assault with a knife.
