A woman was arrested after assaulting the victim with her own high-heel shoe early Sunday morning.
It happened just before 3 a.m. near an alley at 13th and L Streets.
Officer Katie Flood said 29-year-old Julia Bol and the victim, another female, had attended a baby shower. Flood said the two women began arguing about a man. Police said that's when Bol grabbed the victim's shoe and stabbed her in the face with the stiletto heel. Police said Bol began choking her after knocking her to the ground.
Police said the heel punctured the victim's face and needed to be pulled out. The victim was transported to the hospital and sustained non-life threatening injuries.
According to reports, Bol suffered a minor injury to her arm.
