Warren woman allegedly assaults juvenile accused of stabbing her
A Warren woman is charged with assault after allegedly assaulting a juvenile, who allegedly threatened her with a knife and threw it at her early Saturday morning.
According to a police report, officers were dispatched to a home on the 1200 block of Grant Street shortly before 2:00 a.m. Saturday.
Police spoke with the female witness who told officers she and a 16-year-old female heard a knock at her door while sitting inside the home and that the juvenile grabbed a knife out of the kitchen because she didn't know who it was.
Police say when the witness opened the door, she was confronted by the suspect, later identified as 20-year-old Julianna Lambert who began arguing with the juvenile. The victim told officers there was a second female at the door too, but her identity is unknown.
According to the report, Lambert entered the house and the juvenile showed her the knife. Police say Lambert continued to get closer to the juvenile to the point where the knife was touching her, but not enough to cut her.
Eventually, police say Lambert pulled out a pocket knife of her own and that Lambert started to pull the juvenile's hair and scratched her left arm with her nails.
Police say when Lambert went back to her car, the juvenile threw the knife at Lambert, but the knife didn't hit her. Police could not find the knife in the driveway.
The juvenile told police Lambert was allegedly at the house to fight her mother, but police say she later contradicted this story claiming Lambert never entered the house.
Police later spoke with Lambert, who called 911 reporting that she was stabbed. Police say she didn't realize she was stabbed until she got to a convenience store parking lot on Elm Road.
Lambert told police the two were arguing in the driveway when the juvenile was allegedly making a stabbing motion at her and threw the knife as she fled the home.
The juvenile is charged with Felonious Assault and was taken to the Trumbull County JJC. Lambert was taken to the Trumbull County Jail, but has since been released according to jail records.
