Upon arrival, TPD officers reportedly found the victim, a female suspect and the weapon allegedly used in the incident all still on the scene.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment but told police she was walking into her own apartment when she was stabbed in the back.

The multi-agency Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit took over the investigation and eventually arrested 32-year-old Andrea Nicole Noble.

Police say Noble had been in an argument with the other woman and was reportedly worried about being attacked herself.

"The suspect stated she felt as if the victim and her mother were going to jump her," investigators said in the court documents. "So she went into her residence, grabbed a knife, and came back outside. The suspect stated when the victim walked past her, she stabbed her."

Noble, who lives at the apartments, was charged with second-degree assault, a Class C felony.

She was placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where her bond was set at $15,000. She was still listed as an inmate Wednesday.
