Longmont Police Arrest Woman Who Allegedly Stabbed Roommate with Broken Drug Pipe

December 19, 2018 GMT

Longmont police arrested a woman Tuesday night they allege she stabbed another woman with a broken glass drug pipe and then flicked a cigarette at an officer trying to detain her. 

Longmont Police Sgt. Tim Madigan said that Karrine Willis, 26, faces two counts of felony assault, misdemeanor obstruction and resisting arrest as well as two counts of violating a protective order and domestic violence charges.

Madigan said police responded to an RV parked alongside a home on the 100 block of Rothrock Place shortly before 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and found a woman who had sustained a laceration on her hand.

He said Willis, who is accused of stabbing the woman in the hand with a broken piece of a glass drug pipe during a dispute, attempted to flee the area and struck a responding officer in the face with a cigarette before being taken into custody.

The officer wasn’t seriously injured, and the alleged stabbing victim declined to be taken to a hospital, Madigan said.

He added that the two women live together in the RV and don’t have stable addresses. Willis faces charges of violation of a protective order because she was not supposed to be with the alleged victim.
