ABILENE, Texas -

An Abilene woman was arrested Saturday after she allegedly stabbed two other women.

Police said 23-year-old Chelssi Franklin fought with the two women at her south side apartment. According to an arrest report, the two victims told police they went to Franklin’s apartment to fight with Franklin about a previous incident. While the victims were in the parking lot, Franklin’s mother told them to leave; however, police said a fight ensued and Franklin interceded.

Both victims sought treatment from a local hospital.

Franklin is charged with second-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. As of Monday, she remains in the Taylor County Jail with bail set at $30,000.
