A man in Oklahoma was reportedly stabbed in the back with a cake knife during a fight at a 1-year-old’s birthday party on Sunday.
Alenea Bright, 40, was arrested after witnesses told police that she stabbed a man at a party in an apartment complex in Oklahoma City after a dispute between two guests escalated, Fox 25 News reported.
A man and woman at the party reportedly got into an argument over their child, who the man wanted to have stay at his home that night. Tensions rose after the woman started pulling the child from the man’s arms and her family got involved.

Partygoers drove to a nearby 7-Eleven convenience store to call police, who found the man lying in the parking lot when they arrived, Fox 25 News reported.
According to the arrest affidavit, a witness lifted the man’s shirt to reveal his stab wound to police, KFOR reported.
Bright reportedly denied her involvement in the stabbing before police took her into custody on a complaint of assault with a deadly weapon.
