West Hempfield Township police say Candace Jones, 32, of the 2800 block of N. Judston St. in Philadelphia, entered a home on the 2200 block of Oak Hollow Drive, where her ex-boyfriend and another victim were sleeping.

Jones allegedly began to yell and physically attacked the victim, throwing a fan and stabbing her in the leg with scissors. Jones then ran downstairs and cut the arm of a couch, scratched the television, and then went outside and scratched the passenger side of the victim’s car, a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
