Whitehall: Stories don't jibe in alleged stabbing attempt at apartment

Whitehall police arrested a woman last week after she allegedly threatened a man with a knife.

Police arrested Traci L. Brown, 27, at 3:40 a.m. April 10 at an apartment in the 4200 block of Rickenbacker Avenue where she and the man reside, police said.

The victim called police from a locked bedroom and said Brown had threatened him with a knife. The man told police Brown picked up a kitchen knife and when asked if she was going to stab him, replied, "I have to."

When questioned by police, Brown said she owned such a knife but said she was using it only to pry open the locked bedroom door. Police could not immediately locate the knife, according to reports.

Brown was arrested for felonious assault and reportedly was uncooperative while being booked and transported to the Franklin County jail.
