Woman Charged in Stabbing Incident on Prospect Street

She was tracked down a short distance away, police said.

Vernon police have charged a 28-year-old woman with multiple crimes after a stabbing in Rockville on Monday.

At about 7 a.m., officers rushed to 119 Prospect St., where they found a man and a woman - both adults police spokesman Lt. William Meier said - with stab wounds.

The woman is 26 and the man is 35, Meier said.

They were taken to Rockville General Hospital and were treated for their wounds, Meier said. Meier said they were stabbed in the neck. He said the injuries were serious but police do not believe they are life-threatening.

Meier said "all parties involved" had been located quickly and were being questioned by police mid-morning. Police were also at the scene.

Police said the suspect, Alicia Smith, who lives at 119 Prospect St., fled the scene on foot and was reportedly still armed with a knife. The area was surrounded by Vernon Police and a canine unit was called, police said.

After about a half-hour search, Smith was located a block away on Oak Street, police said. She resisted arrest and had to be subdued with a Taser before being taken into custody, police said.

Police said the incident seems to be domestic in nature.

Police said Smith was charged with:

• First-degree assault on one victim.

• Second-degree assault on the other.

• First-degree unlawful restraint.

• Three counts of risk of injury to a minor (police said children were in the home).

• Interfering/resisting police.

• Possession of hallucinogens.

Smith is being held in lieu of a $500,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in  Rockville Superior Court on Wednesday.
