Two people who allegedly fought over a knife face charges after they were treated and released from Washington County Hospital with stab injuries, Washington County District Court records indicate.

Nicole Michelle Sewell, 34, and Brian Mario Graves, 26, both of 321 N. Locust St., Apt. 2, each were charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment after an incident at 11:10 p.m. Sunday in the 1000 block of Noland Drive, court records state.

According to charging documents, Graves told police he heard Sewell open a cabinet drawer after the couple had been arguing all day. As they were swinging at each other, Graves told police a knife fell to the floor, and he picked it up and threw it at Sewell, striking her in the arm.

Sewell told police she grabbed a knife from the dish drainer before the incident, and she was hurt after the couple was wrestling around on the floor, the charging documents state. According to Sewell's cousin, Sewell swung the knife at Graves, stabbing him in the chest, before throwing the knife down on the floor, where Graves grabbed it.
