Three people were cut today during a domestic argument at the Fountainbleau Apartments on Spring Creek Road in East Ridge, authorities said.
East Ridge police spokesman Erik Hopkins said Askia Witherow and Heather Witherow were arguing shortly before 2 p.m.
Heather Witherow’s brother, Michael Brown, pulled a knife and slashed Askia Witherow across the back of the neck, Hopkins said. The two struggled and went to the floor and Brown was stabbed in the left side of his abdomen. Heather Witherow’s hand was cut when she tried to break up the fight, Hopkins said.
Brown walked across the street to Parkridge East Hospital. The Witherows were taken in ambulances to Erlanger hospital.
The investigation is still going on and charges are pending, Hopkins said.
