Woman charged with attempted second-degree murder after alleged stabbing

For the second time in two weeks, an Oak Ridge resident has been charged with attempted second-degree murder and aggravated assault after an alleged stabbing.

The most recent incident occurred Friday when Treasure Sheitel Threat, 25, of Lynwood Lane, allegedly stabbed Kingston resident Stanley Wallace in the stomach in his car at the intersection of Robin Lane and Raleigh Road after an argument in Grove Center, court records said.

She is accused of approaching Wallace’s car and punching him in the head before she allegedly leaned in “and made several more punching motions toward the victim’s stomach,” arrest warrants said.

As Wallace drove away, allegedly striking Threat with a side mirror, he told his passenger, an Oak Ridge man, that he had been stabbed, the warrants said.

The passenger told Oak Ridge Police Department Detective John Hill that he leaned forward in the vehicle and “saw the blood in Wallace’s abdomen and observed what appeared to be some of Wallace’s intestines protruding.”

Wallace was taken to Methodist Medical Center to be treated for injuries to his lower abdomen and bicep and a cut on his hand. He was later transferred to the University of Tennessee Medical Center.

Threat has been charged with attempted second-degree murder and aggravated assault, and she remained jailed in the Anderson County Detention Facility in Clinton on Monday morning.

Threat and Wallace reportedly got into an argument after another Oak Ridge woman summoned Threat to Grove Center because “she was having trouble with someone there,” according to an affidavit filed in Anderson County General Sessions Court.

The second woman had been with Wallace, and she forgot that Threat and Wallace didn’t like each other, the affidavit said.

Wallace left in his car, and Threat and the second woman reportedly walked west on Raleigh Road toward Robin Lane, where they saw Wallace.

The second woman told police that Threat walked up to Wallace’s driver-side window and began punching him when he pulled up to the stop sign.

“She said that she saw Wallace shortly after and realized that Threat had stabbed him,” the affidavit said.

Threat reportedly acknowledged that she had been in an argument with Wallace in the Grove Center area. She told police that Wallace intentionally hit her with his vehicle.

The affidavit said Threat had what appeared to be blood on her white shirt. She also allegedly had blood on a pack of cigarettes in her purse.

But she had no visible injuries and couldn’t explain where the blood came from, the affidavit said.

The earlier stabbing in Oak Ridge occurred July 13 when Jeffrey John Smith allegedly stabbed Michael Showalter with a sword at a Van Hicks Place apartment.

    Congrats, John! You beat Raidsonline.
    BTW, wonder how much monthly Raidsonline cost?
    I thought 911 was how a citizen called in a tip.
    The email is tracable like the phone call.
    Raidsonline has no daily practible value for the average citizen. The Chamber or real estate brokers can steer clients away from certain areas, but it doesn’t prevent, solve, or punish crimes and criminals. It certainly doesn’t help recover stolen property.
    The time the officer spends on entering info into this program would be better spent emailing all pawn shops, gold buying operations, antique shops, and scrap yards with a description of thestolen items and a BOLO.
    KPD does this frequently.
    A major theft happened here three weeks ago. Ten days later theORPD finally called the most likely place where the items may have ended up. The victim called less than 8 hours after his loss was discovered. Why the ten day delay?
    I guess everyone was playing with the new Raidsonline program.
    Theft, like kidnapping, must be dealth with quickly.

      I did ask after the last City Council work session how much the RAIDS system cost the Oak Ridge Police Department, but I haven’t received an answer yet. I’ll have to make a follow-up phone call.

      As I understand it, the information is automatically downloaded into RAIDS through the ORPD records system. I don’t know how much additional time is required to maintain the system.
