PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A woman who failed to appear in court for two separate assault cases has been arrested.
According to the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office, Lakeysh Collins, 41, of Homewood, was listed as a most wanted fugitive.
In April, she was due in court for two separate assault cases, but failed to appear. As a result, warrants were issued for her arrest.
In the first case, Collins allegedly stabbed two other women in the Hays Manor Housing Complex in McKees Rocks. Collins was said to be naked at the time of the incident.
As a result, Collins was charged with aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person indecent exposure and disorderly conduct.
The other case occurred in 2008 when she allegedly became involved in a fight with three teenage girls.
According to police, the girls came to Collins’ house to fight her daughter. At that time, Collins instructed her daughter to go out and fight the girls.
During the fight, Collins allegedly punched one of the girls in the face and pulled out her hair.
On Tuesday, an anonymous tip led police to a home in the 2700-block of Bedford Avenue in the Hill District.
When deputies arrived, they found Collins sitting in a vehicle and took her into custody without incident.
