A woman was stabbed during a fight that broke out outside of a corner store in Syracuse Wednesday.
The stabbing and fight occurred outside Al’s Food Market on Geddes Street and police responded at 2:43 p.m.
Officers arrived to a large crowd still fighting and located Jocelyn Banner, 44, who had a stab wound in her back.
She was taken to Upstate University hospital and it appears that she will survive.
The assailant was a 17-year-old girl who was taken to Hillbrook Juvenile Detention Center.
The police arrested the teen when they arrived, but Banner’s husband and son shoved through the police presence in an attempt to confront her.
Josiah James, 43, and Randall Clark, 20, were both arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. They were issued appearance tickets.
One officer hit his head on the ground while making an arrest.
Kiara Banner, 27, pulled a knife and began to threaten the crowd. She was arrested for second degree menacing and fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon.
Police say the crowd was incredibly large and aggressive while threatening officers. At one point an officer pepper sprayed the crowd.
