A Williamsport woman was arrested on charges of harassment and simple assault after throwing knives at her boyfriend early Sunday morning.

Brittany Rene Stine, 32, admitted to police she assaulted Marco Phillip Garrison Jr. in their home at 1642 Randall Circle.

Police reported they were dispatched to the residence at about 1 a.m. for a report of a domestic disturbance, according to an affidavit.

Upon arrival, police were informed by Garrison that Stine had fled the scene to a nearby residence following the assault.

Stine later told police she threw several knives at Garrison and also punched, scratched and bit him.

Garrison reportedly sustained a laceration on his middle finger, scratches on his neck and a bite mark under his left armpit.

Following her arraignment, Stine was jailed in lieu of $7,500 bail.

A preliminary hearing is set for Nov. 30.
