NORTH BAY -- A North Bay woman has been arrested after police say she allegedly attacked a man with a knife for no apparent reason.
Police say the male victim was in a parking lot in the 600 block of Cassells Street shortly after midnight on Feb. 16 when the incident happened.
Officials say the woman reportedly attacked the man from behind with a knife, hitting him in the head and causing two deep cuts.
Police say the victim pushed the woman away and ran away eastbound on First Avenue to a safe place.
The man received non-life threatening injuries in the incident.
Police say they found the 29-year-old accused that same day, recovered a knife, and made the arrest.
Now, the North Bay woman faces charges of assault with a weapon and breach of probation.
None of the allegations has been proven in court.
She is scheduled to appear by video in court on March 5 at 10:30 a.m.
