A woman has been charged with stabbing a man and another woman Tuesday morning in a domestic attack on the Near North Side.

Enosha Walls, 20, was charged with misdemeanor counts of battery causing bodily harm and domestic battery causing bodily harm, according to Chicago Police.

Walls spotted a 27-year-old man she knew in a vehicle with a 26-year-old woman about 11 a.m. in the 300 block of West Chicago Avenue, police said. She approached the vehicle and an argument ensued.

During the argument, the man and woman got out of the vehicle and Walls stabbed them both multiple times, police said.

The man suffered stab wounds to both legs and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said. His condition was stabilized.

The woman suffered lacerations to both arms and was treated by paramedics at the scene, police said.

At the time of her arrest, Walls was on electronic monitoring in connection with an April armed robbery charge, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office. Her arrest in the stabbing case was considered a violation of the conditions of her electronic monitoring, and her bail amount in the robbery case was increased to $50,000.

She appeared in court for the stabbing charges Thursday and her bail in that case was set at $4,000, the sheriff's office said. She remained in custody Thursday afternoon.

Walls' next court date in the stabbing case was scheduled for July 26 before Judge Megan Goldish, according to Cook County court records.
