An Atlantic City woman is in jail charged with the stabbing of her son's girlfriend.

Atlantic City Police say the incident began late Friday afternoon. Officers responded to a report of a woman with a large butcher's knife, threatening a man.

Here's the account of the incident, from Atlantic City Police:

Officers Joshua Schwenger and Andrew Milone were in the area and were on scene within seconds of the call. Officers Schwenger and Milone encountered Ivonne Herrera who was holding a large butcher knife in her hand and arguing with a male.
The officers began to order Herrera to drop the knife. Herrera initially refused the numerous orders but eventually dropped the knife. As the officers and Sergeant Charles Stuart attempted to take Herrera into custody, she resisted arrest.
After Herrera was in custody, the officers learned that Herrera was fleeing the scene of a stabbing that she had just committed in the 2300 block of Arctic Avenue. Herrera stabbed her son’s 26 year old girlfriend. Herrera’s son, 26, after hearing the victim scream attempted to stop Herrera from stabbing the victim again and sustained a minor cut to his finger. Herrera fled the scene and the female victim was immediately transported to the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Division, by her boyfriend with a non-life threatening injury. The knife used in the attack was recovered by Officers Schwenger and Milone.

Ivonne Herrara, 45, faces numerous charges.
