A 28-year-old woman in custody for a mental health evaluation after stabbing a woman multiple times Monday has been identified as Keely Dandley, of Victoria. 

Dandley was arrested and charged with aggravated assault date, family or household member with a weapon. 

The victim has been identified as Dandley's mother, Elizabeth Duckworth, 66, of Victoria. 

Duckworth was taken to an area hospital after she was stabbed about 1:35 p.m. Monday, said Lauren Meaux, spokeswoman for the Victoria Police Department.

Lariat Lane stabbing

Victoria police officers and detectives stand outside a home in the 400 block of Lariat Lane, where a stabbing occurred.

Meaux said the preliminary investigation revealed a domestic disturbance occurred between the two women who lived together at the residence.

Meaux said the suspect appeared to have been injured during the altercation and was also taken to an area hospital. Neither woman suffered life-threatening injuries; the victim was listed in stable condition. Their names were not available Monday.

Sgt. Lee Lemmons said the stabbing occurred at 409 Lariat Lane, near North Main Street. He said the suspect fled the scene after the stabbing and was apprehended near North Navarro Street and West Crestwood Drive.
