NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A woman was charged with attempted criminal homicide after she allegedly stabbed another woman in the chest in north Nashville earlier this month.

The victim was found in an alley between 12th and 14th avenues, not far from Wheless Street, on Nov. 4.

Metro police reported 42-year-old Sharonda Estleman pepper-sprayed the victim during an argument before stabbing her in the chest.

The victim was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she underwent emergency surgery for a punctured and collapsed lung, according to police.

During the course of the investigation, the victim reportedly told police she and Estleman were arguing over a man before she was pepper-sprayed in the face.

According to an arrest warrant, Estleman was identified by the victim in a photo line-up and witnesses to the stabbing corroborated the victim’s report.

Estleman was booked into the Metro jail and charged with attempted criminal homicide. Her bond was set at $100,000.
