A 25-year-old Mountain Home woman is now jailed in connection with a Friday morning stabbing behind the Mountain Home Church of Christ. Breanna Faye Perrine is being held on a charge of second-degree battery, a Class D felony, according to the probable cause affidavit.
Authorities were called to a pavilion, located on Lake Street, just behind the church, for a reported stabbing.
Original reports indicated a male suspect was being sought in connection with the crime, and a search ensued. A suspect was apprehended around noon, with a female detained for questioning.
A male victim was located on the ground and taken to Baxter Regional Medical Center for treatment. As the investigation continued, the victim later admitted to authorities he had in fact been stabbed by his girlfriend, Perrine. The victim told authorities Perrine became angry over her headphones being broken and stabbed him in the chest.

Perrine was located a short distance away from the scene with a knife in the pocket of her sweatshirt and blood on the blade.

The incident caused a lockdown at nearby Nelson-Wilks-Herron Elementary.

The school released a statement saying, “We immediately ensured that all our doors were locked and the perimeter was secured. During the lockout, we continued our normal operations inside the school building while authorities completed their search. The suspect in the incident has now been apprehended, and we are no longer under a lockout, but we wanted to let parents know that your children (were) safe and enjoying a Friday full of learning and fun.”
