BURLINGTON, N.C. (WGHP) — A woman is in critical condition after a stabbing early Saturday at a Burlington club, according to a Burlington Police Department news release.

Around 2:11 a.m., Burlington officers responded to Club Mamba at 2371 Corporation Parkway when they were told about a large crowd at the business.

While officers were on the scene, they saw a fight between a 22-year-old woman and Tkeyah Simone Harrelson, 26, both of Burlington.

During the fight, Harrelson produced a knife and began to stab the 22-year-old multiple times before retreating into the crowd, the release says.

A sergeant responded and began to assess and treat the victim’s injuries.

At that time, Harrelson returned and began to stab the 22-year-old again and hit the sergeant in the process.

The sergeant then physically removed Harrelson away from the victim and arrested her, the news release said. The victim was taken to a hospital where she is undergoing emergency surgery and is listed in critical condition.

The sergeant received minor injuries which did not require medical attention.
