Suspect in custody after Limestone Canyon Apartments stabbing


AUSTIN (KXAN) — A woman accused of stabbing a man and then locking herself inside an apartment in north Austin has been taken into custody.

Police reported to the Limestone Canyon Apartments in the 12000 block of Walnut Park Crossing around 2:36 p.m. Police found a man in his 30s who had been stabbed and a female suspect with a knife. Police believe the incident was a family disturbance.

The man was transported to a local trauma center with non-life threatening injuries. 

The woman, meanwhile, remained locked inside an apartment for several hours, at which time APD deployed a SWAT team. Once she was finally apprehended, the woman was recieved a medical examination from EMS — and was cleared — before being transported to Travis County Jail.

The SWAT team reportedly tried reasoning with the woman at first, before using distractionary techniques to get her to come out.
