— A Rock Hill woman told police that she accidentally “walked” into a steak knife her brother’s fiancée was holding while they were drinking Wednesday night.

Police went to a Chestnut Street home at about 11 p.m. to investigate a stabbing, according to a Rock Hill police report. They found a woman, 47, with stab wounds in her upper left side.

The woman and her brother told police the stabbing was an accident, the report states. The brother, 43, told officers that his fiancée, 46, was using a steak knife to take their air conditioning unit out of the window because she did not have a screwdriver.

He said everyone in the house had been drinking beer and “having a good time” as his sister told his fiancée not to take the air conditioner out of the window, the report states.

The woman said she walked toward her brother’s fiancée, who turned around quickly. That’s when the woman says she accidentally walked into the knife, the report states, puncturing her upper left side.

EMS arrived on scene and took the woman to the hospital. Police are still investigating.
