On Easter Sunday, Streetsboro Police received a call from the Gardens of Western Reserve Assisted Living at 9975 Greentree Parkway, that claimed an employee had stabbed another employee. The call cut off, but when officers responded, they found a 19-year-old female with severe cuts. 

Witnesses told police that the suspect, 19-year-old Emilie Brunswick of Ravenna, had fled the scene. The victim was transported to University Hospital Portage Medical Campus in Ravenna and police went to go look for Brunswick, who was later found at a relative's home in Aurora, with the help of the Portage County Sheriff's Department. She was placed under arrest for Felonious Assault. 

The victim, whose name wasn't released, was treated and released from the hospital two days after the incident, but police say she will require follow-up care. 

The report added that no patients nor residents of Gardens of Western Reserve were in danger at any time.
