A Sumrall woman is behind bars in connection to a Monday night stabbing in the Hub City.

Darlene Marter, 49, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault in connection to a stabbing that occurred around 10 p.m. at Magnuson Hotel at 6563 Highway 49.

According to Hattiesburg Police Lt. Jon Traxler, officers were dispatched to Forrest General Hospital for a person who showed up with a stab wound.

“Officers advised that the victim was being treated and that the victim was at 6563 Highway 49 visiting a friend when it occurred,” said Hattiesburg Police Lt. Jon Traxler. “The victim advised that after a while of hanging out the suspect (Marter) stabbed them in the back.”
