Woman cuts sister after fight over chore, police say
A woman cut her sister with a knife after they allegedly got into a fight about who was going to do the dishes Tuesday afternoon, according to reports from the Tallahassee Police Department.
Police said the argument happened about 4:20 p.m. in the 3100 block of Prospect Street when 19-year-old Porcshea Ferguson grabbed a kitchen knife and chased after her 17-year-old sister into the bedroom.
Their mom got between the two but Ferguson was able to hit her sister on the shoulder and arm with the knife several times, cutting her, the report said.
Ferguson faces charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and was taken to the Leon County Jail. Her sister was not seriously injured.
