A 45-year-old Camden woman was charged by Horry County police in connection with a woman being stabbed and another woman’s car being damaged in what the victims said was a jealous outburst about their relationship, according to a police report.

Sandra Lee Dixon, 45, was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center at 3:52 a.m. Saturday on charges of assault of high and aggravated nature and malicious damage to personal property with a value of $2,000 or less, according to jail records. Dixon is being held on $31,092.50 bond.

Officers were called about 11 p.m. July 13 to the 3000 block of Shetland Lane for a stabbing and learned a 44-year-old Jarvisburg, N.C., woman had fled a nearby house after she had been stabbed in her back shoulder, according to the report. The victim told police she knew the suspect, Dixon, through a friend.

The victim said she came to visit the friend and Dixon got upset, grabbed a large knife and stabbed her, according to the report. The victim told police that earlier in the day, Dixon was drinking and got upset over the relationship the victim had with the friend.

The victim said she got into a disagreement with Dixon about the jealousy issues and Dixon threatened to kill her, according to the report. The victim said the friend tried to stop Dixon, but Dixon reached over and stabbed her.

The friend told police a similar version of the events. The friend also told police she returned to the house after the stabbing and Dixon threw something and shattered the windshield on her vehicle.

The victim was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center where she received two staples for the wound, according to the report. At the time of the incident, officers were unable to locate Dixon. It is unclear how she was taken into custody.
