An Arkansas woman accused of stabbing an individual during an argument was found with a bloody knife clipped to her front pocket, authorities say.

According to a news release from the Baxter County sheriff's office, a deputy was called shortly before 10:40 p.m. Wednesday to a Midway residence in the 7100 block of Arkansas 126 North reference to a domestic dispute.

At the scene, Deputy Tracy Munson found the victim seated in a chair holding his leg and in blood-soaked jeans, the release states. He told authorities that during an argument with 42-year-old Melissa Goodman, she pulled a knife from her pocket and "waved it around," eventually stabbing him in the leg.

The deputy found a bloody knife clipped to Goodman's front pocket, the sheriff's office said.

Goodman charged with aggravated assault on a family or household member and taken to the Baxter County jail.
