A Pahrump woman was taken into custody following a reported stabbing with a kitchen knife.

The alleged incident occurred at a residence along West Windsong Lane just after 7 p.m. on Dec. 15, according to a Nye County Sheriff’s Office report.

The suspect who allegedly stabbed him was identified as Penny Owen, of Pahrump, according to the report.
