LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman is facing an assault charge after being accused of stabbing another woman several times during a fight.

According to an arrest report, it happened Jan. 12 around 7:30 p.m. in the 1500 block of W. Muhammad Ali Blvd. Police say that's where the victim was visiting a friend when she got into an argument with another woman, 18-year-old Stephanie Bobo.

As the verbal argument continued, the victim told police she and Bobo stepped outside to fight, and that's when Bobo allegedly pulled a knife and began stabbing and slashing the victim.

According to the arrest report, a witness separated the two women and police were called. The victim was taken to University Hospital where she was treated for serious knife wounds. During questioning, police say Bobo gave a recorded statement admitting to stabbing the victim, but claimed she "took the knife out of the victim's hand and defended herself."

No knife was found.

Bobo faces one charge of first degree assault.
