The Lima Police Department was called out to the 200 block of South Collett Street around 3 p.m. The Lima Police Department says 20-year-old Kayonna Stiggers allegedly cut her uncle, 43-year-old Daniel Williams with a knife after they got into a fight. A Lima Police Department detective on the scene said they weren't the only two involved.

“A third party who was a brother who also resided in the residence also became involved in the physical altercation and at some point one of the parties was sliced or cut in the face or neck area,” said Jason Garlock, LPD detective sergeant. “We don’t believe the injuries are life-threatening at this time.”
