The women told police that Richard Hunt and Larry Walker came to their apartment complex and became loud and offensive, when asked to leave; Hunt approached one of the women and swung at her, states a release. The second woman tried to intervene and that's when Hunt allegedly stabbed her with a knife causing a shallow gash across her throat, says authorities.
The report states, the other woman was stabbed several times and sustained a deep cut on the inside of her right forearm, a shallow stab wound on her left hip, and two defensive cuts on her left forearm.
