Police arrested a Lincoln woman Friday night after she allegedly threatened a 12-year-old boy with a knife at her apartment.
Tuesday, prosecutors charged Stacy Jones, 31, with felony child abuse.
In court records, Lincoln Officer Jarid Freyermuth said he and another officer, while investigating a child neglect report Friday evening, talked to a 12-year-old boy who said Jones had cornered him in the kitchen, pointed a steak knife at him, then put the tip of the knife against his shoulder.
It started over a dispute about an open bag of hot dogs, he said.
