Published August 07. 2012 05:01PM

A Tamaqua woman was lodged in the Schuylkill County prison on Saturday, Aug. 4, following a domestic dispute that resulted in injuries to two people.

Tamaqua Patrolman Karl Harig responded to 18 E. Mauch Chunk St., at 3:47 p.m. as the ambulance was dispatched for a male who was unconscious at that address.

On scene Harig learned that Kelly Bredamus, 43, of E. Broad St., had been using a metal cane to strike Robert Morris, 58, of Mauch Chunk Street. Morris had tried to get away from Bredamus. He was able to make it down a flight of stairs but then fell to the ground.

April Stevens, 26, of Lansford, attempted to assist Morris and was then stabbed by Bredamus, who used a screwdriver as her weapon.

Stevens was struck in the upper right side of her chest and sought treatment while Morris was transported to St. Luke's University Hospital - Miner's Campus in Coaldale.

Bredamus was arrested and arraigned before District Judge Stephen Bayer, Tamaqua, on charges of aggravated and simple assault, reckless endangerment, and harassment. Bail was set at $50,000, which the defendant was unable to post.
