    Police arrested a woman they say stabbed a man, then arrested the victim as well, said Statesboro Police Capt. L. C. Williams. The incident took place in the presence of a small child.
    Officers were called to Deluxe Inn June 14 in response to a reported domestic dispute and found a woman standing in front of an apartment holding "two bloody knives," he said. Det.
