JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A Jonesboro woman has been arrested after police say she cut her ex-girlfriend with a box cutter in a Kmart parking lot.

Twenty-one-year-old Rokoiya Smith was being held at the Craighead County jail Tuesday morning on a domestic battery charge. Police arrested her Sunday after the other woman called 911.

The victim says she gave Smith a ride to work at the store. She says Smith became upset after the victim’s cellphone rang and she wouldn’t tell Smith who was calling.

Police say Smith stabbed the woman repeatedly with car keys to no affect before using the box cutter. They say Smith told the victim that stabbing her was worth the criminal charge.

It’s unclear if the victim was hospitalized.

Online jail records didn’t indicate an attorney for Smith.
