Police: Woman stabbed brother

An 18-year-old Norwalk woman faces a felonious assault charge for allegedly stabbing her brother during an argument Monday.

Norwalk police arrested Katelyn Taylor after she admitted to the assault, Norwalk police Detective Jim Fulton said.

Katelyn’s brother, Kyle Taylor, 20, called 911 from their apartment in the 400 block of South Old State Road at about 5 p.m. and told police he’d been stabbed. When officers arrived, he refused to tell them what happened. He was taken to Fisher-Titus Medical Center for treatment, where doctors said he had a punctured lung.

While police were still at the apartment, Katelyn returned home and officers started questioning her. When she took off her jacket, they spotted some blood on her white sweatshirt.

“From the get-go, we suspected she was the person that committed the crime,” Fulton said.

Later at the hospital, Kyle told officers it was his sister who stabbed him with a small kitchen knife. Their mother, Gwendolyn O’Donnell, also later told police she was there during an argument and her daughter stabbed her son, police said.

“We can speculate, it was a disagreement, all of them were involved in it,” Fulton said. “Katelyn had been cussing, disrespecting the mother, and Kyle told her she needed to control herself and treat her mother right.”

The comment allegedly prompted Katelyn to stab her brother.

Police obtained a warrant to search the home, and they found the knife they suspect Katelyn allegedly used to stab her brother.
