The Greenwood Police Department says they arrested a woman Tuesday and charged her with attempted murder.

According to the report, Kwmeshia Dorsha Simon, 24 has been charged with two crimes by the GPD including attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, after she allegedly attacked someone at a house in the city.

Officers state that they responded to the area of Chipley Ave. and Watson St. around 12:30 a.m. and were flagged down by Simon and her boyfriend who were in a vehicle headed to the Self Regional Healthcare Center.

It was discovered by the officers after talking to the couple that they were driving to the SRHC to get medical help for injuries that the boyfriend had. The report says those injuries came after Simon got a knife and became involved in a fight outside of a house that the pair and another victim were in.

According to the official statement, a fight began inside the home and then spilled over to the lawn in the front of the house. The second victim was reportedly in a fight with Simon’s boyfriend when she came out slashing and stabbing with the knife, eventually cutting both of them.

The victim’s wounds were so severe that they may not be able to move their hand or wrist in the future and had to be airlifted to Greenville Memorial Hospital for treatment. The condition of the boyfriend and the extent of his injuries was not listed.

After getting treatment for a hand injury, Simon was taken to the Greenwood County Detention Center and remains there under a $75,000 bond.
