Police received a call of a vehicle stopped on I-69, and the caller stated a woman had a knife in her hand and a male exiting the vehicle was bloody, Bath Township Police Department reports.

The call came in around 7:14 p.m. Tuesday, and the vehicle came to stop at the Webster Road exit. Bath Township officers arrived on scene and located both subjects.

The department reports that the victim was bleeding profusely from his side, and officers provided aid to him until EMS arrived on scene.

The victim was transported to Sparrow Hospital, where he was treated for his stab wound, police say.

An investigation by detectives and responding officers revealed that the female suspect and the male victim, both from Lansing, got into a verbal argument while driving. The fight escalated to the point where the female hit the man with her fist, and later stabbed him with a knife she had in the vehicle, the department reports.

The female was arrested for assault with intent to do great bodily harm, less than murder. She was lodged at the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department Jail, and is expected to be arraigned Wednesday.

Assisting on scene were the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department, Bath Township Fire Department, Mercy Ambulance Service and the Clinton County Central Dispatch.
