STACYVILLE - A Stacyville woman was arrested for threatening a woman with a knife in Mitchell County.

Rita Aurea Torres Vazquez, 25, was charged with misdemeanor domestic abuse assault.

The incident occurred at about 7:45 a.m. Wednesday at a residence on East Vernon Street in Stacyville.  

According to court documents, a woman called 911 and told dispatch that she was being threatened with a knife.

Vazquez and the woman allegedly got into a fight upstairs. Vazquez then went downstairs and picked up a large black handled knife before going back upstairs and threatening the woman, court documents said.

“Rita stated that she did retrieve the knife from downstairs, and took it to the bathroom with her, but did not threaten (the woman) with it,” the criminal complaint said.
