MILWAUKEE — Sylvia Kimble of Milwaukee is now charged in connection with a Christmas Day stabbing incident that happened on the city’s northwest side.

Kimble, 24, faces the following criminal counts:

  • Substantial battery, use of a dangerous weapon
  • Second degree recklessly endangering safety, use of a dangerous weapon

Police were called to the residence around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 25. According to the criminal complaint, officers spoke with a woman who said her daughter, identified as the defendant, “had been arguing with everyone in the home all day.” The complaint says Kimble “tried to hit her own sister…by punching her but missing. Then the defendant picked up a vase but her sister was able to take it away.” At that point, Kimble’s mother intervened — and Kimble “ran into the kitchen and got a 7-inch rainbow knife.” The complaint says Kimble stabbed her mother in the top of the head.

The complaint indicates the mother needed six staples to close the wound. It also says “she had a skull fracture as a result of being stabbed.”
