ROCK HILL A Rock Hill woman was arrested this weekend and accused of stabbing a man who may have attacked her first, according to a police report.

Tracy Griffin, 43, is charged with second and third degree assault and battery, as well as providing false information to police, the report states.

Rock Hill Police were called to Executive Inn on North Anderson Road Sunday afternoon and found the 41-year-old victim treating a stab wound in his left forearm. Witnesses state that Griffin and the victim began arguing in their motel room, with Griffin being punched and kicked, the report states.

Griffin grabbed a frying pan from the sink to defend herself. When she was still being assaulted, Griffin took a kitchen knife and slashed the victim, according to the report.

When police found Griffin, she gave a false name of “Becky.” While being transported to jail, Griffin stated that “he was stalking me. He came at me,” the report states.

Griffin is in jail on a $5,000 bond.
