A woman was arrested early Friday after being accused of stabbing a Murrysville man during an argument inside his home.

Shalonda White, 43, who lists addresses in Murrysville and Homestead in court records, was arraigned on charges of aggravated assault and simple assault in connection with an incident that occurred at a residence on the 4000 block of Sardis Road.

Officer Anthony Talamo reported that police were called to the home at 4:27 a.m. for a report of a domestic dispute. Court documents said police were met by a man “who had blood on several areas of his body, specifically a stab wound to his right leg and a bloody right eye.”

Talamo said the man told police that White stabbed him with a large, silver kitchen knife and punched his right eye.

According to police, the man barricaded himself in the bedroom, but White “broke the door off its hinges” and continued punching him before running out of the home.

Talamo said police confiscated a kitchen knife that had blood on it.

A short time later, investigators later located White near the intersection of Sardis and School roads.

Talamo said White denied stabbing the man and claimed he struck her with a plumbing tool and punched her.

White requested medical treatment, police said. The man declined medical treatment, Talamo said.

White could not be reached for comment. An attorney was not listed in court documents.

District Judge Charles Conway scheduled a preliminary hearing for July 23.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
