ARKANSA S CITY — The Arkansas City Police and Fire-EMS departments responded to a stabbing Friday night at a house that resulted in the arrest of an Arkansas City woman.

Brandi Lynn Cullum, 44, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated battery, criminal threat and disorderly conduct. She was transported to and booked into the Cowley County Jail in lieu of $7,500 bond through Cowley County District Court in Arkansas City.

Police were dispatched about 10:30 p.m. Friday for a report of a stabbing in the 800 block of South First Street. They found a male victim in the roadway, bleeding from wounds to his arm and chest.

While police were speaking to the 55-year-old victim, Cullum appeared from behind the house, holding a knife. She yelled that she was going to kill the victim and began walking toward the officers.

Cullum was subdued and taken into custody without incident.

Both Cullum and the victim were transported to the South Central Kansas Medical Center emergency room and treated for injuries suffered during the physical altercation between the two.
