Woman who allegedly stabbed friend with ice pick arrested in Paradise

A woman wanted by Chico police for allegedly stabbing a friend with an ice pick was arrested in Paradise on Friday (Aug. 29).

Chico police had been looking for Wendy Davis, 50, since Aug. 25, when officers responded to a reported stabbing at a mobile home park. Davis (pictured) had a disagreement with a friend, who she allegedly stabbed in the back as the victim turned to walk away, according to a press release. The victim was treated at Enloe Medical Center.

Davis drove away in a minivan. A Paradise police officer responded to a report Friday night of a transient woman on the 6600 block of Clark Road. Davis was arrested and booked into the Butte County Jail, and is charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
