A Sonora woman was arrested Thursday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly stabbing a co-worker at Rosalinda’s Gentlemen’s Club in Jamestown.
The victim, a 22-year-old female resident of Jamestown, told Tuolumne County sheriff’s deputies she had an argument with the suspect, 21-year-old Meghan Harden. It escalated into a physical altercation, the victim said, during which Harden stabbed her in the leg.
The victim got a ride from the scene and called for help at the AM-PM mini-mart on Mono Way near Standard Road.
Deputies arrived to find the victim in a vehicle, with a stab wound to her right thigh. She was transported to Sonora Regional Medical Center for treatment of the injury. The wound is not considered life-threatening.
Harden was located by deputies later Thursday morning and gave a statement regarding her involvement in the incident. She was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and was booked into Tuolumne County Jail.
She remained in custody as of Friday morning, with bail set at $40,000.
The weapon, a knife, has been recovered, said Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Scott Johnson.
