Woman arrested, charged following child stabbing

By KTVA CBS 11 News 3:09 PM April 8, 2014

Anchorage police have arrested and charged an Anchorage woman for allegedly stabbing her son, police said Tuesday evening.

Tracia Jordan-Sainte, 40, was charged with one count of first-degree attempted homicide and one count of first-degree assault, said police spokeswoman Jennifer Castro.

Her 3-year-old son remains at the hospital in critical condition, Castro said.

Police received a call at 1:19 p.m. about a child who had been stabbed by a woman on the 200 block of Muldoon Road, said police spokeswoman Jennifer Castro in a statement Tuesday afternoon. They were staying at a Safe Harbor Inn, which provides shelter to dozens of individuals and families in need of transitional housing.

Police and medics responded, Castro said, and the child was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. The 3-year-old underwent emergency surgery, police said Tuesday afternoon.

In a written statement, Tom Newins, board chair with Safe Harbor Inn, said the nonprofit’s board of directors and employees are cooperating with police and are concerned for the safety of the child. No additional details were offered.

KTVA talked with a few residents who say the building is normally quiet and that they were shocked by the incident.
