LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested two women in connection with in incident in which a man was stabbed multiple times in the back.
According to an arrest report, it happened at 4:00 Monday morning in an apartment near the corner of 22nd St. and W. Market St.
Police say a man woke up and discovered that $500 was missing from his shoes.
He allegedly confronted 34-year-old Rayshonda McDowell about the missing money, accusing her of stealing it while he was sleeping.
As the two were arguing, police say 23-year-old Brittany M. Thompson grabbed a knife and stabbed the man multiple times in the back, "causing serious physical injuries."
The man was taken to University Hospital with multiple stab wounds. He allegedly was able to tell police that McDowell and Thompson stole the $500 and planned to split the money between the two of them.
While being interrogated by police, Thompson allegedly admitted to stabbing the victim and throwing the knife outside the apartment in order to hide the weapon from police. Police say she also told them that McDowell mopped up the blood.
McDowell allegedly admitted to mopping up blood but she said she only did that in an effort to find a missing tooth -- not to clean up the scene.
Police arrested both women. Thompson is charged with first degree assault. Both Thompson and McDowell are charged with tampering with physical evidence and theft by unlawful taking, according to police.
