LITTLE ROCK, AR — A local woman is recovering from stab wounds that might have been self-inflicted, according to the Little Rock Police Department.

Dalemetris Bynum, 48, of 1804 S. Harrison St., was taken to the hospital following the incident that happened near her home shortly after 10 Thursday night. Her injuries were not life-threatening, doctors told police.

The police report states that Bynum had gone to a neighbor’s home at 1813 S. Harrison to get her daughter and grandchild to come home when she began fighting with two women who live there. Those women were treated at the scene by paramedics for minor injuries reportedly suffered while struggling with Bynum. Police said one of them had scratches on her face, chest, and wrist.

Police say Bynum was treated for eight puncture wounds mostly on her right side but also on her arm and left buttock.

Bynum’s daughter told police she had left home with her 1-year-old child and gone to stay at the neighbor’s home because her mother was intoxicated. The 27-year-old said she refused to fight with her mother for fear of being arrested and having her child taken away from her.

Police looked for a knife and blood trail but found neither, the report said. Officers did not make any arrests, but advised the women who fought with Bynum that they could file charges against her if that’s what they wanted to do.
