Authorities have accused a woman of stabbing a man.

Abigail Mata, 19, was charged March 2 with willful injury causing bodily injury.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, the man was in the restroom at Brothers Bar, 125 S. Dubuque St. He said something to Mata, who was also in the men’s bathroom. Mata’s brother, who was also in the bathroom, confronted the man.

As the man turned away from Mata’s brother, he was pushed. The man noticed he had blood on his arm. Shortly after the incident, a knife was reportedly found on the floor when Mata was involved in another altercation at a different bar. Days after the incident, Mata went to the Police Department and allegedly admitted she was responsible for the stabbing.

Willful injury causing bodily injury is a Class-D felony.
