The Odessa Police Department received a call about the disturbance at about 5:39 p.m. Sunday and were dispatched to Seminole Street.

The mother’s fiancé said he witnessed Heart try to stab her mother with a kitchen knife, the release detailed, and he stated that he got between them and separated them.

Odessa police arrested and charged Heart with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony. Heart remained in custody as of Monday afternoon with a $25,000 bond, jail records show.
