WATERVILLE — A Waterville woman is facing charges after allegedly stabbing a man and a woman during an altercation on Redington Street on Thursday, police said.

Waterville police Deputy Chief William Bonney said Friday that Jessica Byrn-Francisco, 32, was arrested on two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon. The charges are Class B and Class C felonies, respectively.

Bonney said that officers arrived on Redington Street around 6:15 p.m. on Thursday in response to a reported altercation between two females and a male. All three were acquainted with one another, according to Bonney.

“There had been an argument which turned physical,” Bonney said. “Byrn-Francisco (allegedly) stabbed the female and then the male, causing what I would say to be serious but not life-threatening injuries.”

Both the female victim, 34, and the male, 40, were taken to Northern Light Inland Hospital in Waterville. Bonney added that one of the victims was later transferred to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

When officers arrived on Redington Street on Thursday, Byrn-Francisco was no longer at the scene. After an investigation by Waterville Police Department’s Detective Division, she was later identified as a suspect and arrested around 11 p.m. at her apartment on Walnut Street, across town, Bonney said.

Byrn-Francisco was taken to Kennebec County jail in Augusta and held on $20,000 cash bail.
