A Fayetteville woman was booked into jail Tuesday afternoon, May 17, after she allegedly stabbed a man several times with a kitchen knife a week before her arrest.
Robin G. Weeks, age 53, has been charged with second-degree felony assault in the incident.
According to Detective John Fetters of Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Weeks allegedly admitted to stabbing the victim 3 times in the chest and one time in the back during an altercation at their Black Oak Rd home on May 11.
Weeks originally told detectives the victim had stabbed himself before changing her story and admitting she stabbed the victim, according to court documents.
Fetters said the Brown County Sheriff’s Office was not informed of the stabbing until the day of Weeks’ arrest.
The victim, who has been treated and released at Bethesda North Hospital, initially did not want to press charges against Weeks, he added.
Hospital staff interviewed the victim and Brown County Sheriff’s Office was contacted, Fetters said.
“The knife has been recovered. We went up and searched the residence with consent of the victim and processed the scene, recovered the weapon, took photographs,” Fetters said. “Right now we’ve got DNA swabs for the suspect. We’ll be obtaining DNA swabs from the victim for comparison to be sent off to the lab with the blood stains, and then the case will be sent to grand jury.”
Weeks was arraigned Wednesday morning in Brown County Municipal Court. Bond was set at $50,000 cash, surety or property.
The case is set for a preliminary hearing on May 25.
Weeks, a repeat violent offender, served five years in a Kentucky state prison for a previous assault case.
