Van Alstyne Police received a domestic disturbance call about 5:45 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 30). The incident took place at a home, occupied by at least two members of the same family, in the 700 block of Nash Street

Police Lt. Steven Hayslip said the officers found that the suspect and the victim, sister and brother, had been arguing, and one of the two received stab sounds in his leg.

Hayslip said their information received is that the argument escalated until the sister took a kitchen knife and stabbed her brother, twice, in the leg. The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and, Hayslip said, he declined treatment.

Police jailed the suspect on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon-family violence. Once incarcerated, a magistrate set bail at $75,000 available in surety bonds with conditions. As of Wednesday night, she remained incarcerated.

This is the 4th arrest made in Van Alstyne on charges of assault in the past few weeks, but all involved different suspects and different alleged victims.

More will be reported in the near future.
