A Springfield woman who allegedly stabbed her 79-year-old uncle has been arrested and charged.
Rebecca Isaac, 37, is charged with attempted murder and aggravated robbery in Clark County Municipal Court. She is due in court at 10:30 a.m. this morning.
Springfield police began their investigation when they were called to a home on the 2100 block of Gerald Drive in reference to a stabbing.
“Upon officers arrival, they located the victim inside the residence and (he) was bleeding profusely from a chest wound. Medics responded and immediately transported him to Springfield Regional Medical Center where his injuries were assessed and because of the severity, he was transported by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital,” the affidavit says.
A spokeswoman said the victim is still at Miami Valley Hospital but couldn’t release his condition Thursday morning.
The affidavit says there was blood scattered throughout the home and several cabinets and closets were open which appeared to be ransacked.
Officers spoke with a family member who stated she received a call from the victim after the assault and told her that Issac came to his house and stabbed and robbed him of $300, according to the affadavit.
“Detectives spoke to the victim at Miami Valley Hospital,” the affidavit says. “He stated he was sitting in his chair when he awoke to a pain in his chest and stated his niece was stabbing him with a knife and demanded $500 at which time he stated ‘Becky do you know what you’re doing?’ and she replied ‘I’m going to kill you if I don’t get the money.’”
Isaac allegedly continued to stab the victim and forced him to retrieve $300 out of a safe.
“Victim had stab wounds to his chest (nicked his arterial vessel, left palm, left bicep, left leg and eight to 10 superficial wounds),” the affidavit says.
