Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) -  A Rochester woman accused of chasing three people with a knife is now facing two felony assault charges.

The incident happened last October.

According to the criminal complaint, 24-year-old Christiana Tate and one of the three female victims got into an argument “about her on again, off again boyfriend. “ He was with the victim at the time.

Tate later confronted the victim and two other females. She began fighting with one of them, striking her head against a car. The complaint says Tate then grabbed a knife and mace and “began chasing all three victims while brandishing the knife.” 

 

Tate also damaged the car owned by the woman who was with her ex-boyfriend, slashing all the tires and smashing the windshield with a baseball bat before she left. 

Tate was charged Monday and ordered to make her first court appearance in June.
