Woman arrested for allegedly stabbing coworker in Lawrenceville

PITTSBURGH — A woman was arrested for allegedly stabbing a coworker in Upper Lawrenceville Sunday morning.

Kyra Starver, 22, of Pittsburgh, is charged with two counts of aggravated assault and a count of simple assault.

Pittsburgh police were called to a moving and storage business in the 100 block of 54th Street at around 8:30 a.m. for reports of a stabbing.

They found a male with stab wounds to his ribs and hand. He was alert and conscious.

Medics took him to a local hospital in stable condition.

Starver, who was not on the scene, called 911 to let them know she was waiting for officers on Berlin Way, according to the complaint.

Starver told officers she and the alleged victim argued about him smoking in a vehicle they were both passengers in. She said the victim wouldn’t let her out of the vehicle and it got physical, with him pulling her hoodie over her head and pulling her hair, according to the complaint.

The victim told police Starver got physical first and he walked away, according to the complaint. He said while he was standing on a sidewalk, Starver walked up to him and stabbed him.

Starver was placed in the Allegheny County Jail and posted bail. She is due back in court later this month.
