MADISON, Wisconsin — This is taking sibling rivalry to a whole new level.
A pair of sisters in Wisconsin were arrested after stabbing each other while engaged in “mutual combat” in front of five little kids, police said.
Madison police say the fight erupted between Abria Tate, 24, and her 23-year-old sister Alyssa Tate, “after a heated family argument regarding child care.”
When cops arrived at the home where the fight erupted they found “two uncooperative adult female sisters with stab wounds to their arms.”
Cops say there were five small children in the house at the time that witnessed the stabbing.
Alyssa was allegedly armed with a knife, a scissors and pepper spray. A man who was in the home at the time was arrested after cops found a gun in his bag. He was initially accused of instigating the fight.
Both women were treated and released with non-life threatening injuries. They were both charged with domestic reckless endangering safety, and children’s protective services are trying to figure out what to do with the children.
