UPDATE: Homeless camp stabbing suspect arraigned on assault charge
Updated Monday, May 11, 3:15 p.m.
A woman was arrested Sunday on an assault charge after police say she allegedly stabbed a man she had been in a prior relationship with.
Just after 5:30 a.m., police were called to “a homeless camp near Chester Creek and C Street” after reports of a stabbing that occurred at a homeless tent, according to charging documents.
There, police found an adult male with multiple stab wounds.
Charging documents identify the stabbing victim as Alfred Canales, who suffered a 6-inch stab wound to his lower left abdomen “with fatty tissue coming out.” He also had cut wounds to his left hand and a cut above his right eye.
APD says he was taken to the hospital and is in critical condition. The suspect, identified as 45-year-old Elizabeth Chiskok, was found intoxicated in the woods, charging documents say.
“Chiskok had blood on her hands, her pants and a bloody knife in her back left pocket,” the documents state.
Chiskok was “cooperative with police” and was taken into custody at the scene. She has been charged with first-degree assault — a Class A felony — and was arraigned Monday.
“A preliminary investigation determined that Chiskok knew the victim and had been in a prior relationship with him,” APD says. “The suspect and the victim got into a verbal altercation and Chiskok stabbed the adult male.”
