A woman has been treated and released from the hospital after another woman stabbed her in the back of the head and neck last week in Davenport, police said Monday.
The 24-year-old victim suffered five stab wounds Jan. 27 and received stitches and staples. Davenport Police Capt. Dale Sievert said the injuries were not life-threatening.
