— A Rock Hill woman called police to report that she stabbed her brother Tuesday evening because he allegedly threatened to knock her teeth out and then head-butted her, authorities say.

Police at about 5:15 p.m. were sent to a Manchester Street home, off North Jones Avenue, after receiving word of a possible stabbing, according to a Rock Hill police report. While on the way to the house, dispatchers told police that Kathy Hubbard, 44, called and told them she stabbed her brother, Jerry Sims, 39.

Police found Sims on the front porch, and he pointed to Hubbard, standing on the sidewalk, and told police, “that’s her,” the report states. Hubbard told police the knife was in her jacket pocket, before explaining that she and Sims got into a heated argument over money. Sims allegedly threatened to knock her teeth out, the report states. Hubbard took out a pocket knife and opened it, she told police. That’s when Sims head-butted her in the nose and she stabbed him once on his left side. She then called police.

Sims told officers he and his sister argued over money. She got upset, the report states, and then stabbed him. A witness told officers he “looked up” and saw Hubbard holding her nose, yelling, “why did you bust my nose?” At the same time, he saw that Sims had been stabbed.

Police arrested Hubbard, charging her with second-degree assault and battery. Sims was treated at Piedmont Medical Center, police say.
