Marrekia Anchelle Thompson (2/14/1985), non-fatal stabbing suspect in Scott County jail.
An early morning altercation turned violent on Jan. 27 when Marrekia Anchelle Thompson, 27, of Davenport, allegedly used a knife to stab a 24-year-old woman in the back of the head, back of the neck, back of her right shoulder and her right hand, police said.
Officers responded to Ms. Thompson's home at 2502 Rockingham Road., about 3:49 a.m. and transported the victim to a nearby hospital, where she received stitches and staples for five non-life-threatening stab wounds, Davenport Police Capt. Dale Sievert said.
The victim, whose name is not being released, later was discharged.
Witnesses at the scene identified Ms. Thompson as the person who stabbed the woman, according to a police affidavit.
Ms. Thompson was arrested on Jan. 30 in Rock Island and faces a felony charge of willful injury. She waived her preliminary hearing on Tuesday in Scott County Circuit Court and remained in Scott County Jail on a $6,000 bond on Tuesday evening.
She is scheduled for a Feb. 28 arraignment.
