Woman arrested in knife incident

A North Vernon woman is facing felony charges after allegedly slicing a man with a knife.

Lt. Mike Mowery, spokesman for the Jennings County Sheriff’s Department, says deputies were called to a report of a person injured with a knife at about noon Monday near County Roads 150N and 400E. The alleged victim said he was giving Shi Ann Schildknecht a ride when she cut him. She then opened the door and ran away, he said.

He was treated by medics for a minor cut and then released.

The 27-year-old Schildknecht was found shortly afterwards in another vehicle trying to leave the area. As she was being arrested, officers allegedly discovered syringes and other drug paraphernalia. She was arrested on preliminary charges of battery and possession of a syringe and drug paraphernalia.
