NORWELL (CBS) – A KFC employee attacked another employee with a wooden hair spike during an argument outside the restaurant in Norwell on Tuesday.

Rosa Monteiro, 25, allegedly stabbed the victim with the hair piece in the chest, causing a 1/2-inch cut at around 5 p.m.

Monteiro, who is from Brockton, fled the scene with a man and her 4-year-old daughter, but police caught up with her a short time later on Pond Street in Norwell and arrested her for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Monteiro was later released on $140 cash bail.
