Woman arrested after allegedly stabbing victim after shopping trip

TULSA, Okla. – A woman has been taken into custody for a stabbing that sent one woman to the hospital last month.

In November, police say the victim had just finished shopping at a Target store in Tulsa. Investigators say that the victim was loading bags into her car when another woman tried to grab her purse and threatened to stab her.

Instead of handing over her purse, the victim held onto it and the alleged suspect stabbed her in the arm with a knife.

Recently, officers in Tulsa arrested 33-year-old Rachel Sheppard for the crime.
