Tampa police arrest woman in stabbing

TAMPA — Police have arrested a woman they say stabbed another during a fight Monday night.

About 9 p.m., officers say, two women started arguing in an apartment at Robles Park Village.

The fight between Laryesheah Coleman, 21, and Tyrease Spears, 19, became physical, and Coleman grabbed a knife, Tampa police say.

A third woman — Victoria Guyton, 28 — grabbed a butcher knife and tried to intervene.

Police say Coleman stabbed Guyton in the upper chest, leaving a 2-inch wound that was not life-threatening.

Coleman's brother pulled Coleman away and took her out of the apartment.

She ran away but was soon caught by police.

Authorities charged Coleman with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

She remained in jail Tuesday in lieu of $7,500 bail.
