A woman was taken into custody Friday after she reportedly stabbed a man in Shenandoah.

According to State Police in Frackville, the incident began around 7:40 a.m. on April 1. Police say they responded to a reported stabbing at 116 N. Bower St. in Shenandoah.

When they arrived on the scene, police say they learned that a 44-year-man (police have not released his identity) was stabbed in the arm with a knife.

Police attempted to find the suspect, Angelina Velousky, 26, of Shenandoah, but were unsuccessful.

The State Police Special Emergency Response Team was called in to help take Velousky into custody. Three hours later, Velousky surrendered to police outside that Bower St. address.

Police also apprehended a Franklin Sterner inside that same address. They say he’s wanted on another crime.

Velousky was arraigned before District Judge Anthony Kilker on a felony aggravated assault charge and other related offenses. Kilker set Velousky’s bail at $50,000 straight cash and sent her to Schuylkill County Prison.
