A young McCracken County woman was arrested after she stabbed her uncle during an altercation at her home Thursday evening.

Police were called to a disturbance at a home in the 1100 block of North 13th Street. About the same time, a man called 911 from his home on South 5th Street and reported he had been stabbed.

Farren Sims told police William Patrick Sims, 44, came to her North 13th Street home and assaulted her, and she stabbed him in self-defense. William Sims, however, said he was asked to come to the home and was ambushed when he arrived.

William Sims was taken to Baptist Health Paducah for treatment of a cut to his forearm and a puncture wound to his back. Farren Sims was arrested on a charge of second-degree assault and booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
