The 911 Emergency Call Center alerted police to the stabbing incident at Double Scoops VI Specialty Ice Cream at Lockhart Gardens about 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The injured woman was interviewed by police at the Schneider Regional Medical Center and told them that after an argument with Simon, she left Double Scoops VI only to be stabbed in the back once ice cream parlor employee Simon.

Simon was able to be located by police and charged with third-degree assault and destruction of property.

Unable to post $25,000 bail, Simon was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending an advice of rights hearing.
