Tacoma Police are asking for the public’s help to find a suspect accused of stabbing a woman in the face with a knife. Ka’Dora Princella Foster is charged with assault in the first degree. A bench warrant was issued for her arrest after she didn't show up in Pierce County court for her arraignment on May 2.
Tacoma Police say the victim was in a car with several other people at Jack in the Box at 76th and Hosmer on Jan. 27 when they noticed a vehicle tailgating them. They stopped and the victim started to get out of the car anticipating a fight. She told officers that was when Foster approached her with a knife and slashed her in the face.
“Several people were there. They witnessed it. They tried to intervene. Some people were spraying pepper spray. Ms. Foster jumped in the vehicle and fled the scene,” said Officer Loretta Cool with Tacoma Police.
The victim’s injury was described in the police report as a “deep laceration to her left cheekbone/jaw beginning below her left ear and terminating to the left side of her mouth.” Police spoke to the victim at the hospital where she was getting stitches to her face. She told them she recognized Foster because she used to date her new wife. The victim told police she wasn’t sure why Foster hated her so much.
“We do consider her armed and dangerous. She confronted someone she hadn’t had contact with in over a year and in her confrontation, she brings a knife,” said Officer Cool.
Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to Foster’s arrest.
