AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- An Augusta woman is wanted after allegedly assaulting two people and stabbing one of them on Wednesday.

The two victims say they were sitting in a car while dropping off a friend on the 200 block of Walker Street when 22-year-old Ieesha Faulks came up and started punching one of them in the face through the open driver's side window just before 11 p.m.

The second victim got out of the car to stop Faulks, which is when she says Faulks and another woman knocked her to the ground. During the altercation, the victim was stabbed in the chest with a knife and punched and kicked in the face, according to the incident report.

The victims were both able to get back in the car, which is when they say Faulks punctured the tires on the passenger's side of the car.

The victims' injuries are not said to be life threatening.

A 2-year-old child of one of the victims was inside the car during the assault.

Faulks is facing charges of aggravated assault, criminal trespass and third-degree cruelty to children.

She is described as a black female with black hair and brown eyes who is 5'7" and weighs 150 pounds.
