LOUISVILLE, Ky – A Gibson County, Indiana woman was arrested early Thursday morning after police said she got into an altercation with her partner and tried to run from police.
According to an Indiana State Police news release, police were dispatched to a home in the 500 block of Dongola in Oakland City after a 911 hang-up call. When officers arrived they found Sarah Bruce, 24, sitting on the couch with a bloody nose and a laceration to her neck.
Samantha Robbins, 27, was also present and she had no visible injuries other than a small red mark on her neck.
Police say while they were attempting to escort Robbins outside, she attempted to flee, but was quickly restrained after a brief struggle with police. While searching Robbins’ purse, officers found several Hydrocodone pills and a marijuana cigarette.
Police said further investigation revealed that an argument ensued between Bruce and Robbins in the home. Police believe that when Bruce called 911 and attempted to talk to the dispatcher, Robbins tried to take away the phone and threatened her with a knife by holding it to her throat. Bruce was able to get the knife away from Robbins and hid it next to the couch.
The knife was recovered and blood was visible on the blade. Bruce was treated and released from Princeton General Hospital. Robbins was taken to the Gibson County Jail where she is currently being held without bond.
Robbins is charged with battery, possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana and domestic batter.
