An Evans woman is in jail after police say she stabbed a man during an argument at the Washington Road Travelodge.

Investigators said the suspect, Kari Nicole Lamar, 23, was knocking on random doors on the first floor of the motel at 3039 Washington Road around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

The victim, William Patrick Berry, 48, who lives at the motel, told deputies he woke to find his live-in girlfriend standing at their door arguing with Lamar about being too loud and waking residents. Berry pulled his girlfriend inside and shoved Lamar out of the doorway.

Police said Lamar then pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed Berry in the back two times, puncturing a lung.

Lamar was booked Monday into the Richmond County Jail on an aggravated assault charge.

If 23 is old, I'm museum

If 23 is old, I'm museum material-obviously a proof reading mistake.

Truth be told

I am Kari's mom and this story is so far from the truth it makes me sick. I saw the video and this man did not just push my daughter he close fist man punched her in the head. She is pregnant & felt that the safety of herself & her baby was in danger. She has been kidnapped & raped before therefore she carries a pocket knife in her purse. The man used as much violence and he started it. Why doesn't the media post the violent powerful punch that this grown man did to a petite pregnant girl? She retaliated and I can't say I wouldn't have done the same after seeing the punch she took and the words he said to her!!!!

Maybe it's just me

The article's head line on the news page said a 23 year "old"......I thought it was funny puppym.

As for Kari's mom. Whatever the truth is, I hope it comes out and justice is rightly served. Regardless, I don't understand why a petite, pregnant girl is alone, outside at a motel at 3:30 am. If she had regard for the safety of herself and her baby, she should have been at your house, asleep in bed.

Sorry if this sounds cold. I do hope the best for you and your daughter.
