SUSPECT: Angel Renee Mahone, a 27 year old female residing at 50900 Gratiot (Chesterfield Motor Inn).
VICTIM: A 42 year old female and current live-in girlfriend of suspect Angel Mahone.
Thursday morning (1/28/2016) at approximately 4:20 a.m., Chesterfield Township Officers responded to 50900 Gratiot, the Chesterfield Motor Inn, where multiple tenants were reporting that a woman had been stabbed. Upon their arrival Officers located several persons tending to the 42 year old victim who was bleeding from several stab wounds to her back and shoulder area. The victim was able to describe the incident to the Officers (prior to be being transported to the hospital) stating that as she and Angel Mahone were walking to the bus stop on Gratiot, from the “Motor Inn”, Angel began accusing her of “cheating” with another woman during their relationship. The victim stated that Angel Mahone became progressively irate and began punching her and the victim stated she told Angel to stop, and that she was going to jail. At this point the suspect produced a knife and began stabbing her while they were in the middle of Gratiot. The victim stated she was able to flee from the roadway and take refuge in one of the witnesses apartments. The witnesses in the apartment told Officers they heard the victim screaming for help from out on Gratiot and took her in when she ran towards their unit. The witnesses added that they observed the suspect searching for her after she escaped and added that the suspect smashed out a front window to one of the apartments while searching for the injured victim. The witnesses stated they believed the suspect ultimately ran back across Gratiot and got on a southbound bus.
Chesterfield Officers requested Clinton Township Officers and M.C.S.D.’s B.O.L. the Smart bus along with a suspect description. A short time later Chesterfield Township Officers met with Clinton Township Officers at Gratiot and Joy Blvd., where Clinton Township Officers had stopped the bus and had suspect Angel Mahone detained. Chesterfield Officers took her into custody and a female Macomb County Deputy conducted a post arrest search of suspect Mahone. During the search a bloody folding knife was located in the suspects cargo pants pocket. She was then conveyed to the Chesterfield Police Department.
The victim underwent surgery for a punctured lung upon her arrival to McClaren Hospital and is listed in serious condition.
After review today by the Macomb County Prosecutors Office, Angel Mahone was charged with: Assault With Intent To Do Great Bodily Harm Less Than Murder (10 year felony), and Malicious Destruction OF Building / Less $200 (93 day misdemeanor). Malone was arraigned this afternoon at the 42-2 District Court in New Baltimore via video from the Chesterfield Township Police Department. She was then lodged at the Macomb County jail on a $100,000.00 cash bond.
