HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Officer S. Laird reported:
Ms. Ali was working in a dry cleaners business at the above address when a female suspect (Fields) came in wanting a ride home. Ali called for a taxi cab, but the suspect stated she did not have money to pay. The suspect became angry and assaulted and stabbed Ali several times in the face and head area with a kitchen knife. She then fled the scene on foot, but was taken into custody a short distance away by responding HPD officers.
Paramedics transported Ali to the hospital.
Fields was subsequently charged for her role in the incident.
