ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — A woman was hospitalized Tuesday morning after being stabbed during a fight between several women at a school bus stop.

Officers were called to the 3500 block of Elm Street, in the area of the Rockford Ridge Apartment (formerly Concord Commons) around 8:25 a.m.

According to Rockford Police, as four women were dropping their children off at a bus stop, an argument ensued and escalated into a physical fight.

According to the police report, the fight began because of an encounter between two of the women’s children the previous day.

During the fight, police say Shatay Barney, 29, stabbed Lenora Fields, 28, with a box-cutter-like knife. According to the police report, Barney claimed she cut Fields in self-defense with a set of keys that fell to the ground during the fight.

Police said Fields suffered “lacerations to her face, bicep, and abdomen” and “the injury to her abdomen caused her intestines to be exposed through the wound.”

Fields was taken to the hospital for surgery but is expected to recover.
