Mariner Street woman arrested in stabbing

A 21-year-old Mariner Street woman was arrested on felony assault charges Tuesday evening for allegedly stabbing a man and a woman during an incident that night in a home in the first block of Metcalfe Street.

Jameea Russell was charged with second-degree assault after police were called to Sisters Hospital to talk to the man and woman she allegedly stabbed repeatedly in both of their hands. The woman was treated at that hospital but the man was taken from there to the Erie County Medical Center for treatment of what police described as a “large 6 inch stab wound to his right thumb.”

Police said they recovered the knife allegedly used in the incident.
