37 year-old Andrea Sivak is in the Missoula County Jail charged with stabbing a man several times with a knife.

Missoula Police Department Public Information Officer Travis Welsh provided details on the incident that occurred over the weekend.

“Early Monday morning at about 5:40 a.m. officers responded to a report of a disturbance in the 2500 block of Clark Fork Lane,” said Welsh. “While they were enroute the complainant advised that he had been in an argument with an adult female that had been at his residence, and at some point she assaulted him with a knife.”

Welsh said the suspect was leaving the scene just as officers arrived.

“As the officers approached they learned that the female was leaving in a vehicle,” he said. “The officer made observations of the vehicle and initiated a stop nearby. Another officer went to the scene and discovered that the victim had one stab wound in the forearm and another stab wounds on the forehead.”

Welsh described the arrest of the suspect.

“The female, identified as 37 year-old Andrea Sivak, was placed under arrest for felony assault with a weapon,” he said. “The male victim in this case, although advised of his injuries refused medical attention. Miss Sivak was transported to the Missoula County Jail where she is being held for felony assault with a weapon.”

She appeared in Missoula Justice Court on Tuesday afternoon.
