PARKERSBURG — Separate incidents involving a stabbing and methamphetamine sales led to the arrest of two Parkersburg residents over the weekend.

On Thursday, Ashley Lynn Ohse, 38, homeless, allegedly stabbed the female victim in the leg resulting in the need for six stitches, according to a criminal complaint filed with the Wood County Magistrate Court.

While the two were on 14th Street in Parkersburg, Ohse pushed the victim to the ground and when she fell, a knife fell out of her pocket, according to the complaint. Ohse grabbed the knife and stabbed the victim in the leg.
