A 29-year-old woman has been arrested and charged for her role in an altercation in which a man she was with stabbed and critically injured two other men across the street from the Chickie’s & Pete’s restaurant in South Philadelphia, police said Monday.
Carol Leidy of the 2500 block of South Percy Street in South Philadelphia was charged with aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, and related offenses.
Just after 10 p.m. Sunday, a group of people had just left the sports bar at 1526 Packer Ave. when a man and Leidy started yelling at them and approached them while they were trying to enter a vehicle.
The couple began fighting a man who stayed outside the vehicle, and the rest of the group tried to break up the altercation. Police said Leidy assaulted two people during the fight. The man she was with then committed the double stabbing and fled, but returned to pick up Leidy, police said.
A 23-year-old man stabbed in the stomach was taken in critical condition to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. A 24-year-old man stabbed in the chest and stomach was taken to Methodist Hospital in critical condition.
Police detained a person at the scene for questioning but did not say whom it was.
