Special to the Fort Mill TimesDecember 17, 2012 

— A Fort Mill woman admitted to stabbing her younger brother out of self-defense during a physical altercation, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.

The incident happened at a home off Foothills Way in Fort Mill. Police responded to a hospital after the victim was taken there for treatment of non-life threatening wounds. The victim, a 23-year-old Clover man, told deputies he was intoxicated and arguing with his siblings, but he did not disclose the nature of the dispute.

He told deputies that his sister stabbed him during the altercation, the report states. However, the 25-year-old woman told police she stabbed her brother in self-defense when he lunged toward her during the fight. A second brother, age 19, told police his older bother was drunk and combative and had assaulted him before being stabbed by the older sister, according to the report.

Investigators talked to other witnesses who were at the scene of the crime, but they couldn’t provide definitive accounts of what took place, the report states. The siblings declined to press charges against each other, the report states.
