Kristen Anderson in court for her bond hearing
Kristen Anderson, 34, broke into a Phoenix home by crawling through a doggy door, grabbed a young girl inside and threw her on a couch, the Arizona Republic reported.
But her sister unleashed her own attack on the woman, stabbing her in the chest, the paper reported.
Anderson “started rubbing her hand in her blood then rubbing it onto her face saying ah, blood [sic],” the arresting cop wrote in his probable-cause statement.
“The defendant rubbed her blood onto the face, legs, and hair of [one of the girls],” the officer wrote.
The 10- and 12-year-old girls, who were not physically hurt, managed to run away to a neighbor to seek help.
By the time officers arrived, Anderson “was walking down the street yelling, you cant [sic] control me,” according to court documents.
She was collared and taken to a hospital to be treated for the stab wound and to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, the paper reported.
The arresting officer said the barking mad woman kicked a hospital worker in the stomach as she tried to give her a sedative so they could perform a CT scan.
The officer believes Anderson might be mentally disturbed, according to the documents.
“Witnesses reported that a female adult suspect had been seen acting erratic, jumping fences and striking walls,” police Sgt. Mercedes Fortune said.
There was no obvious evidence that she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, officials said.
Anderson later appeared in court, where she stood quietly by her lawyer. A judge set her bond at $5,000 and ordered electronic monitoring should she be released.
