HEMET (CNS) - A woman suspected of being intoxicated is accused of slashing an officer with a knife, inflicting non-life threatening injuries, during an encounter in a residential neighborhood in Hemet, police said Saturday.
Officers responded to a call of a woman "acting erratic and displaying bizarre behavior" at about 8:15 p.m. Thursday in the 600 block of North Kirby Street, according to the Hemet Police Department.
