WILKES-BARRE — A woman is in custody after she allegedly stabbed a man multiple times Sunday night while yelling that she wanted him to die.
Marissa Toloczko, 32, of Wilkes-Barre, faces charges of aggravated assault, terroristic threats, simple assault, disorderly conduct and harassment, according to city police.
Officers were dispatched just before 5 p.m. to South Sherman Street for a report of a male victim who had been stabbed three times in the chest. The victim indicated that he and Toloczko got into an argument over the custody of a child, police said.
During the argument, according to the victim, Toloczko “flipped her lid like a crazy person” and yelled, “I want you to die!” police said.
Toloczko was taken into custody and transported to Wilkes-Barre Police Department Headquarters, where she was processed and arraigned on the charges by Magisterial District Judge James Dixon.
Unable to post $50,000 bail, Toloczko was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility to await a preliminary hearing scheduled for Aug. 17.
Police believe the victim’s injuries are not life threatening.
