Two people were injured in an alleged stabbing Tuesday evening in Overland Park.

Just before 8:40 p.m., police were called to the Hickory Hills Apartments, near 54th Terrace and Antioch Road, near the border with Merriam and just northeast of Merriam Town Center.

Officer John Lacy, a spokesperson for Overland Park Police, says officers determined the call to be a domestic disturbance.

“Upon arrival, officers found a male party who stood over a female armed with a knife,” Lacy said in an emailed response to questions.

Recorded radio traffic indicates that a man and a woman both sustained minor cuts from a knife. Johnson County Med-Act transported both to area hospitals.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office booking log lated showed that officers arrested a 33-year-old woman who lives at the Antioch Road address.

She’s now being held on a charge of aggravated battery with intentional harm. Her first court appearance is scheduled for this afternoon.

The male involved in the incident has not been arrested.
