The fight started in the apartment of a Parkland man who dated two women.
One of the women, 32, stopped by about 11:15 a.m. Thursday. Her ex wasn’t home, but his new girlfriend was, Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.
An argument quickly broke out at the apartment in the 400 block of 110th Street Court East.
The new girlfriend said she was stabbed with what she described as a car key, leaving “a long and deep laceration on her left thigh,” according to charging papers.

The ex-girlfriend said the new girlfriend grabbed her by the hair and she couldn’t get away, so she took a folding corkscrew (also known as a wine key) out of her purse and stabbed the other woman in the leg.
She fled, but realized she’d left her keys behind. Deputies found her in a nearby store and arrested her. The corkscrew was found in her purse.
She has pleaded not guilty to second-degree assault and first-degree burglary and is being held in lieu of $30,000 bail.
