COLUMBIA — A woman was stabbed while walking from her mother's house on Forest Avenue on Monday night, police said.

Jasmine Patrick, 28, told police she was walking home from her mother's house a little before 10 p.m. when two women got out of a car and began to fight her, said Jeff Westbrook, an assistant public information officer with the Columbia Police Department.

Patrick's mother approached the two suspects with a large stick and caused them to run off, Westbrook said.

Patrick suffered a deep cut on her arm, a puncture wound on her hand and a cut on her head. She was taken to University Hospital, and the wound on her head required staples, Westbrook said.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Patrick was treated and released from University Hospital, said hospital spokeswoman, Barbie Morgan.

Patrick told police she only knew the suspects' first names. She picked one suspect, a 21-year-old woman, out of a photo lineup but did not identify the second suspect. The identified person might or might not have been involved in the crime, Westbrook said.

The investigation is ongoing and police are attempting to positively identify the suspects.
