A Dunnellon woman was arrested after allegedly attacking a victim, holding a knife to his neck, and threatening to kill him.
On Sunday, September 19, deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a residence in Dunnellon after receiving a call regarding a domestic battery incident.
Upon arrival, deputies made contact with a victim that was bleeding from his mouth and his chest.
The victim says that he and 36-year-old Sarah Sparaccio, who fled the residence, were involved in a verbal altercation that turned physical. According to the victim, Sparaccio showed up to his residence uninvited, became verbally argumentative, and battered him before retrieving an 8-inch knife from a kitchen drawer.
The victim says Sparaccio placed the knife against his neck and threatened to kill him before she stabbed a hole in the wall. The victim says he tried to get away from Sparaccio, but she followed him and allegedly punched him in the face.
According to the report, Sparaccio left the scene and police were unable to locate her until Thursday, September 30. She was arrested and transported to the Marion County Jail where she faces charges of battery and aggravated battery with the use of a deadly weapon. Her bond was set at $15,000.
Sparaccio was released after posting bail on Saturday, October 2. She is next due in court on Tuesday, November 2 at 9 a.m., according to jail records.
