GREENBURGH, N.Y. – A 44-year-old Greenburgh woman was arrested early Thursday after Greenburgh police said she stabbed another woman in a fight.

Tonya Upshaw is charged with two counts of second-degree assault, a felony.

Police said an officer was flagged down by a man while on patrol on Manhattan Avenue in Fairview around 8:45 a.m. The man told the officer two women were fighting in a parking lot.

The two women have been involved in an on-going dispute involving their children that came to a head Thursday, said police.

A 28-year-old woman involved in the fight with Upshaw sustained a laceration on her left arm and a small puncture wound to her neck, police said. The man, 31, who flagged down police suffered a laceration to his right hand when he tried to separate the women.

Both were taken to the Westchester Medical Center and treated for their injuries.

Police said Upshaw used a three-inch pocket knife in the attack. She was arraigned on $10,000 bail and taken to the Westchester County Jail.

Upshaw is due in Greenburgh Town Court on April 5.
