EUGENE, Ore. - A woman faces accusations she stabbed a man Tuesday night.

Police arrested Victoria Lynn Swanger, 51, of Eugene and jailed her on felony charges of First Degree Assault and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

The stabbing victim is expected to survive, police said. Police identified him as a 60-year-old man but declined to release his name.

Officers responded to Bonvue Street, south of Royal Avenue, around 9 p.m. (Note: the street appears as "Bon Vue Drive" in Google Maps but "Bonvue Street" according to city maps and police)

They found the injured man in front of a home. Medics took him to the hospital.

Officers "received information" that Swanger "approached the victim in the front yard, yelled and threatened the victim prior to the assault," according to a police report. "Swanger was then observed leaving the area and was located by police a short distance away from the residence on Highway 99. Police also recovered the weapon that had been discarded in the area that Swanger was located."
