A homeless woman was arrested after allegedly stabbing another homeless woman in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood Christmas morning, a police spokeswoman said.
Drusilla Holmgren, a 27-year-old transient from San Francisco, allegedly called out the name of a 28-year-old homeless woman around 7:30 a.m. in the 200 block of 13th Street, police said.
Upon hearing her name, the woman emerged from a tent she was staying in with her husband, and Holmgren allegedly attacked her with a knife, Newman said.
At some point during the fight, the victim and her husband were able to hold down Holmgren and the victim somehow injured Holmgren in the eye, Newman said.
The victim was not armed with a knife and did not stab Holmgren, Newman said.
During the tussle the victim suffered back, neck and face wounds.
Both women were transported to the hospital.
Holmgren was arrested on attempted murder and weapons violation charges, Newman said.
She will be taken to jail after she is released from San Francisco General Hospital where she is being treated, Newman said.
Both women are expected to survive their injuries, she said.
