An NYPD S.W.A.T. team in tactical gear responded this afternoon to an apartment building in Crown Heights after a woman stabbed her roommate and then barricaded herself in the apartment.
The incident occurred at around noon today, Wednesday, at 501 Lefferts Ave., between Kingston and Brooklyn Aves.
Both the assailant and her victim were described as Hispanic women by police.
Police believe the woman stabbed her friend after an altercation. The friend then called 911, and the suspect barricaded herself in the apartment, leading to a large police and S.W.A.T. convergence on the property.
The woman was eventually arrested and taken to the 71st Precinct for booking.
The victim’s injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
