Whidbey woman wielding bamboo hits men
A 21-year-old Clinton woman was arrested for seriously injuring two men by beating them with a bamboo cane last week, according to court documents.
Prosecutors charged Stefany J. Cornett in Island County Superior Court May 7 with two counts of assault in the second degree.
Judge Alan Hancock set her bail at $10,000 on May 3.
Cornett allegedly attacked her two roommates as they walked down the driveway of the Hideaway Lane home, according to the report by Deputy Scott Davis with the Island County Sheriff’s Office. She called one of the men “a backstabber” before attacking.
Cornett struck both men numerous times with the 4-foot stick.
One of the men suffered a serious fracture to his cheek and eye socket; the other sustained head lacerations and a possible broken hand, the report states.
