A Milwaukee woman has been charged after stabbing her mother in the head on Christmas.

Police say Sylvia E. Kimble, 24, was arguing with everyone in her home on West Tower Avenue Wednesday. Kimble attempted hitting her sister, even picking up a vase but her sister was able to take it away.

From there, Kimble went into the kitchen and grabbed a 7 in. rainbow knife, according to the criminal complaint. She then ran at her mother, stabbing her in the top of her head.

Kimble also lunged at her sister with the knife but her sister was able to move out of the way. She then ran out of the residence with the knife, according to the criminal complaint.

Kimble's mother was taken to the hospital shortly after where she received six staples to the stab wound on her head. She was later informed that her skull had been fractured as a result of the stabbing.

The Milwaukee police officer on the scene reports that the wound to Kimble's mother's head is a 1 to 1.5 in. laceration. He also said the wound was swollen.

Kimble is charged with one count of substantial battery (substantial bodily harm with intent to cause bodily harm), use of a dangerous weapon and one count of second degree recklessly endangering safety, use of a dangerous weapon.
