A stabbing in Carlisle Tuesday night sent one woman to the hospital and has landed another in jail.

Dianna Wiggins, 27, of Carlisle was charged with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor reckless endangerment after Carlisle Police say she stabbed a family member outside her home in the 400 block of Fairground Avenue around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said the victim arrived at Wiggins’ home to talk to her when Wiggins ran at her vehicle and stabbed two tires with a knife.

The woman then got out of her vehicle to confront Wiggins when Wiggins stabbed her twice, once in the abdomen near her ribs and once in her arm, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed by Carlisle Police.

The victim attempted to drive away but had to stop after a short distance because two tires on her vehicle were flat, police said.

A bystander found the woman and drove her to UPMC Pinnacle Carlisle, according to police. Police said she was later taken to Penn State Hershey Medical Center for treatment before being released.

Wiggins was arrested Wednesday and taken to Cumberland County Prison in lieu of $500,000 bail.

She is scheduled to appear in front of Magisterial District Judge Jonathan Birbeck at 1:15 p.m. Nov. 14 for a preliminary hearing, according to court records.
