A Davenport woman is charged with two felonies after police said she tried to stab two other women with butcher knives, cutting one of them on her face.

Crissy Love Hare, 37, of 928 W. 6th St., is charged with going armed with intent and willful injury causing serious injury.

One of the women was treated at University Hospitals, Iowa City, and will have a permanent scar on her face, according to Hare’s arrest affidavit.

The alleged incident occurred at 7:24 p.m. Monday at Hare’s home. Police said she swung three butcher knives, at least eight to 10 inches long, at the two women.

She was released Wednesday from the Scott County Jail after posting bond.

Going armed with intent is a Class D felony that is punishable by up to five years in prison upon conviction.

Willful injury causing serious injury is a Class C felony that is punishable by up to 10 years in prison upon conviction.

I want to ask the difficult question...is she really out on bail?


Uncle Paddy, do you know in fact that these knives were household kitchen knives or were they commercial grade assault style knives? And did she possess a permit to carry carving tools or was she unlawfully packing? C'mon, those are the REAL questions here.


That is irrelevant, you must blame the knives not the person swinging them around. It is the knives fault, therefore they should be banned from every household in the U.S.


We need to pray for this lady. I don't think she will be smiling in prison, which I am confident she will go there. She needs to be there. She might be crying because she will be with out her knives. She's....how old?


Let's pray for this smiling woman. I am sure she will not be smiling in prison, which I am confident she will go. She may be crying once there, since she will be without her knives. She's, how old?

Uncle Paddy

We need stricter knife control laws.


Where did she GO armed with intent to do harm, since she was in her home at the time of the incident?
