WILKES-BARRE — One woman was taken into custody following a stabbing on Carlisle Street on Tuesday.

Police were called to the South Wilkes-Barre neighborhood at around 6:30 p.m.

Officers said one woman was arrested and another treated for minor injuries at the scene. Their names and ages were not immediately released.

Neighbors who declined to be identified described seeing one woman running down Carlisle Street with a knife, shouting “better not come around here anymore.”

When the woman returned down the block, neighbors observed that she was no longer holding the knife.

Police were seen retrieving a knife from under parked car on the corner of Carey Avenue and Carlisle Street during the investigation. A Times Leader reporter also observed one woman being led from a house in handcuffs, screaming that a man had tried to shoot her.

Police said the suspect would be arraigned later Tuesday on charges of simple assault, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and harassment.
