Renee Tucci, of Walnut Street, allegedly stabbed 31-year-old man in an apartment above the bar. She was remanded to jail after failing to post bail.
A Lansdale woman remains at Montgomery County Correctional Facility for her alleged involvement in a stabbing in an apartment above Junction House Pub early Saturday morning in Lansdale.
Renee Tucci, 31, of the 100 block of Walnut Street, is charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, possessing instrument of a crime and related charges, police said.
Tucci was arraigned before District Judge Cathleen Rebar, and bail was set at $50,o00 cash, police said. Tucci failed to post bail and was taken to prison.
A preliminary hearing is set for March 15 at 11 a.m. before District Judge Harold Borek.
On March 5 at 1:45 a.m., police responded to 115 Walnut Street for a report of a stabbing in one of the apartments.
Upon arrival, police found a 31-year-old male victim holding down Tucci, police said. According to police, the man was bleeding heavily from a stab wound to his back that he and other witnesses said was caused by Tucci.
Investigation revealed the incident started inside Junction House Pub. Tucci and another female became involved in a physical altercation, police said.
According to police, the other woman, who is a friend of Tucci's, fled the bar and ran to the upstairs apartments in an effort to escape Tucci.
Tucci allegedly followed the woman and, once inside the apartment, again tried to instigate a fight, police said.
Police said other people in the apartment tried to calm Tucci down; however, she allegedly continued to attack the other woman.
The male victim intervened on behalf of the woman, and police said this enraged Tucci.
Tucci then allegedly grabbed a knife from the kitchen and stabbed the man on his upper right side of his back, according to police.
Tucci was then disarmed by the victim and a male witness and held down until police arrived.
Tucci and the victim were transported to Abington Hospital by VMSC. Tucci was treated and released for minor abrasions, police said.
