DENVER (AP) - Prosecutors have formally charged a woman accused of stabbing Denver’s fire chief near the department’s headquarters.

The Denver District Attorney’s Office announced Friday that 42-year-old Marlene Zacevich-Rodriguez was charged with attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault. She remains in custody on $100,000 bail and is due in court Tuesday.

Chief Eric Tade was in an unmarked SUV on Tuesday afternoon when a woman jumped into the vehicle and stabbed him in the hand and leg. He was hospitalized with minor injuries and was released that evening.

Investigators say the attack appears to have been random and unprovoked.

Booking documents do not indicate if Zacevich-Rodriguez has hired an attorney.
