WAYNESBORO, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Waynesboro police have arrested a woman who’s accused of stabbing a victim in the back with a screwdriver.

Emily Ann Johnson was arrested this week, although the stabbing happened April 16, according to police.

It occurred in the back yard of a home in the 800 block of Martin Luther Kind Boulevard after the victim told Johnson she’d seen Johnson on her bike that day, according to police.

Johnson then took a screwdriver and started stabbing the victim in her back, an officer wrote in a report about the incident.

Johnson was being held Wednesday in Burke County jail on charges of battery and aggravated assault.
