Woman arrested after stabbing two during armed robbery
BATON ROUGE - A 18-year-old woman was arrested after she allegedly stabbed two people during an armed robbery.
According to arrest records, the suspect, Keondra McNeely, and two other suspects, were riding in a vehicle with the two victims prior to the crime.
McNeely reportedly asked one of the victims, who was driving the vehicle, to go to a friend's house on Cadillac Street so she could use the restroom, according to arrest records.
McNeely and another suspect exited the vehicle and went into an unknown apartment, according to arrest records. The two then got back into the vehicle with McNeely sitting directly behind the driver, according to arrest records.
At this time, McNeely reportedly grabbed the victim's head and cut her throat, according to arrest records. McNeely then proceeded to stab the victim in the back, shoulder and arms, according to arrest records.
The victim's boyfriend attempted to stop the attack, at which time he was also stabbed multiple times, according to arrest records.
The victim reportedly heard someone yell "I am taking your car *****," during the attack, according to arrest records.
Both victims were eventually able to escape from the vehicle, at which time McNeely and the other two suspects fled the scene in the victim's vehicle.
Both victims were transported to a local hospital for emergency treatment and surgeries. The two victims are still in the hospital due to their injuries.
The vehicle was later located on Oct. 5, 2017, within a two block vicinity of where McNeely lives, according to arrest records.
Both victims were able to positively identify McNeely in a six picture line-up.
McNeely was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on two counts of attempted first-degree murder and two counts of armed robbery.
