Woman charged with stabbing man at camp near Minto

Posted: Thursday, September 12, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A Nikiski woman has been charged with third-degree assault for allegedly stabbing a man at a hunting camp near Minto, Alaska State Troopers said.

Victoria Cross, 44, allegedly stabbed David Titus, 48, four times on the night of Sept. 5. Titus received cuts under his right eye, his forehead and right shoulder blade, troopers said.

Titus told troopers he does not know Cross and doesn't know what provoked the attack.

Cross is being held on $50,000 bail. The high bail was because of 11 prior convictions for assault and prostitution, according to the complaint.

Authorities said the attack occurred after Titus and another man returned to camp after a day of hunting and were sitting with others drinking and eating.

After Titus was stabbed, his friends duct-taped his wounds and put him in a boat to get medical help, according to Minto Village Public Safety Officer Samuel Flyinghorse.
