The suspect in Thursday’s stabbing in Caldwell was set to be sentenced for another stabbing incident later this month.

Emily Teresa Guerrero was booked into the Canyon County jail on aggravated battery and resisting arrest charges after being located with evidence linking her to the crime, according to a press release from the Caldwell Police Department.

Guerrero was also charged with felony eluding, grand theft by possession and resisting arrest for an unrelated incident, the release said. Thursday’s stabbing victim, a 26-year-old, was taken to a hospital and was in serious but stable condition, according to Caldwell Police. The incident occurred on the 1000 block of 5th Avenue in Caldwell.

In January, Guerrero was charged with aggravated battery after allegedly stabbing a man in the abdomen. According to a probable cause affidavit, the victim of January’s incident told police that Guerrero “started running at me with a knife and stabbed me.” Per court documents, the victim told police he was attempting to hug Guerrero and told her, “I love you.”

Guerrero told police that the man started yelling at her about another woman and tried to calm him down by doing some heroin with him, according to the police affidavit.

“She said she ‘chased’ him, gave him a hug, and after she hugged him, he started screaming and crying that he got stabbed,” according to the affidavit. Guerrero reportedly implied that he had stabbed himself. Police said Guerrero also indicated that she did not know what happened because she blacked out.

Guerrero was set to sentenced on Sept. 18.
