Woman arrested in neighbor’s stabbing in Chattanooga

A man has been hospitalized for multiple stab wounds after police say a neighbor forced herself into the man’s house and came after him with a knife.

Elecia Banks, 31, was arrested after police say she entered her 56-year-old Eric Robinson’s home at 1803 Wilson Street and repeatedly stabbed him, according to police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary.

Police said Robinson suffered multiple stab wounds to his face, eye, chest and shoulder. His current condition is not known.

Robinson told police that Banks assaulted him after the two got in an argument on his porch.

Banks reported that Robinson made an inappropriate comment about her children that fueled the argument and the stabbing, Weary said.

Banks is currently being held at the Hamilton County Jail and faces charges for aggravated assault and especially aggravated burglary.
