WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

A 29-year-old woman is facing an assault charge after police say she cut her roommate's neck with a knife early Sunday.

According to a Charleston Police Department incident report, 29-year-old Brittany Foote got into an argument at their Ashley Crossing Lane residence around 4:30 a.m. Sunday. As the argument became physical, the report states Foote grabbed a knife from the butcher block and held it up against her roommate's neck.

Foote then sliced underneath the victim's chin, leaving a laceration about ½ inch deep, according to the report. Foote began apologizing as soon as she drew blood, but she called police nonetheless, police said.

The roommate was taken to Medical University of South Carolina for treatment.

Foote was taken to the Charleston County Detention Center. She is charged with assault and battery second-degree.

Editor's note: The initial version of this story contained two erroneous errors referencing the size of the cut wound and the source of the call to police.  Live 5 News regrets and apologizes for the errors.
