Woman Stabs Guest in Face After Comment

A Nebraska woman suffered a knife wound to her face following a dispute over the unsanitary conditions of her friend’s home, which was reportedly filled with dog feces and dead rodents, local law enforcement officials reported. The Lincoln Police Department received a distress call shortly after midnight on Sunday. The call was initially difficult to decipher due to the sound of children crying in the background.

The caller eventually revealed that her cousin, 24-year-old Tatiana Iniguez, had allegedly stabbed their mutual friend during a heated argument. The victim had reportedly visited Iniguez’s home and expressed concern over the state of the house, particularly given that two young children, aged 2 and 4, resided there.

According to the police report, Iniguez responded violently to the criticism, attacking her cousin and initiating a choking assault. The victim intervened in the altercation, fearing for her cousin’s life and the safety of her own children, aged 1 and 5.

The situation escalated when Iniguez allegedly seized a knife and began attacking the victim, threatening her life. In an attempt to shield herself, the victim sustained a stab wound below her right eye and multiple defensive injuries on her hands. When police arrived at the scene, she was still bleeding.

Upon entering the residence, officers reported observing an excessive amount of dog feces in the basement, dead mice, and scattered clothes, some of which were covered in dog excrement. They also discovered a large knife at the scene.

Iniguez was subsequently arrested and charged with aggravated assault and possession of a deadly weapon. She was transported to the Lancaster County Jail and held on a $25,000 bond. The children present at the home were placed in the custody of Iniguez’s mother.
