Woman Charged With Stabbing At Occupy Baltimore

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police say a woman has been charged with assault in a stabbing at the Occupy Baltimore site.

Officers say Desiree Nicholson, 23, of Halethorpe has been charged with assault in the incident early Sunday at the encampment at the Inner Harbor. She is being held on $75,000 bond.

According to a police report, the unidentified victim says she and Nicholson had gotten into an argument “because [Nicholson] was not taking care of her cat.”

The police report says Nicholson kicked the woman in the stomach, then stabbed her in the arm and thigh with a knife.

The victim is reportedly in stable condition.
