A woman was stabbed twice Sunday night in a northwest Roanoke fight, according to police.
Roanoke police Capt. Monti Lee said officers responded to the fight in the 800 block of Hunt Avenue Northwest at 9:50 p.m. They saw people leaving the area and did not find anyone fighting.
About 20 minutes later, Lee said, officers were called to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital when a woman arrived with two stab wounds to her shoulders and a cut to her face.
Andrea Gissela Willis, 37, of Roanoke was injured in the fight on Hunt Avenue, Lee said.
Investigators issued a warrant for the arrest of Charlene Beverly Bryant, 39, of Roanoke on a malicious wounding charge stemming from the fight.
Bryant turned herself in to the police, Lee said, and is being held at the Roanoke City Jail without bond.
Eric Earnhart, spokesman for Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, said Willis has since been released.
Lee said the women knew each other and the fight sprang from previous issues between them.
