MADISON, Wis. - Two people previously in a domestic relationship were arrested Saturday afternoon after getting into a physical fight that involved a knife, police said.
Madison police responded around 2:15 p.m. to the 3000 block of Todd Drive for reports of a woman attempting to stab a man, according to a release.
Officers arrived and detained a 19-year-old woman, who was unarmed, and a 21-year-old man, police said. A pair of scissors was found near the woman.
The man and woman got into a fight Saturday afternoon at a party in the Manor Drive area, investigators said.
The woman tried to stab and slash the man with knives, so the man used a chair to break one of the windows of her vehicle, witnesses told police.
According to the release, the two reconnected later in the day and agreed to meet in the Todd Drive area to exchange a cellphone, but when the two met the man beat up the woman.
The woman had a knife and started chasing the man around the neighborhood, which is when several witnesses called police, officials said.
The woman was taken to a hospital for minor injuries from the battery, police said.
The woman and man were both arrested on several tentative domestic-related charges.
