Meka Anita-Lorraine Daniels, 32, is charged in Muskogee County District Court with a felony charge of assault and battery with a deadly weapon after an altercation outside a Veterans Affairs psychiatric ward, according to an affidavit filed with the case.

Officers Sgt. James Amos and Sgt. Jeniece Abernathy were called to the facility with complaints that a woman was trying to enter the locked facility. The officers told the woman to step away from the door. She allegedly produced a “large kitchen knife” and held it against her own throat.

Daniels allegedly refused to drop the knife, so Abernathy pulled pepper spray out, and Daniels allegedly ran. Sgt. Amos tackled her and reported that Daniels was repeatedly stabbing him in the back, but his external ballistic carrier prevented the knife from entering him. Abernathy grabbed Daniels’ arm and the knife cut her face just under her right eye. The two finally subdued the woman and arrested her.
