A woman was arrested in Tupelo after police say she stabbed a man at WalMart.

Police say last week they were called to the Walmart on South Gloster for a stabbing. The victim was a man and he was taken to the emergency room at North Mississippi Medical Center for care.

Officers located the scene of the assault at the old Carnation Milk plant. Police say a Witness indicated that the suspect was a white female who had fled the scene prior to officer’s arrival. After interviewing the victim and witnesses an aggravated assault warrant was issued for suspect Lexi Aubriana Hutchenson, 20, of Tupelo.

On Monday, Tupelo officers were called to the Econo Lodge at 879 Mississippi Drive for an alleged trespasser in the pool area. Officers identified and arrested Hutchenson on the aggravated assault warrant.

Tupelo Municipal Court Judge Weir set bond at $100,000. This case will be presented to the Lee County Grand Jury.
