On Tuesday around 1:30 p.m. police arrested a 50-year-old Seneca Falls woman following an assault investigation that started in November 2021.
Police originally responded to an address on Bridge Street after a victim reported that she was stabbed in the leg by Tammy Whitfield, a 50-year-old, from Seneca Falls.
The victim was transported to Geneva General Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, according to police. However, officers were unable to locate Whitfield initially.
A warrant was issued and on January 11 she was located at a separate residence on Bridge Street. She was charged with second-degree assault and third-degree possession of a weapon. Police say both of the charges are felonies.
She was processed at the Seneca County Correctional Facility and will answer the charges at a later date.
Police say they were assisted by the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office.
